    Dear Sheila, Jimmy and David,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Barbara was a beautiful women and I was fortunate to spend many of my younger days sharing a cup of tea and laugh with her. I loved her enthusiasm for her Bruins and Harlequin novels! Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

    I miss you so much Nana! I wish I had known you were on borrowed time the last time I was on Cape Cod I would’ve made a much better effort to have had lunch with you! Not a day goes by I don’t miss you and Papa my daughter speaks of you often as does my wife the only good thing that come out of this horrible day is that you were finally reunited with Papa hopefully you were looking down on all of us with a smile. I take solace in thinking that you both are up there taking care of me and Kristin’s son Brendan. I could not think of two better people to look after our son than you! Until we meet again.
