    Dear Daniel,Florence,Deborah,and Family,
    I am really saddened to hear about your mother’s death. I have a lot of happy memories of spending time with your family when I was growing up. I always enjoyed talking with your mom at the campground. She will be missed. Joe sends his regards.

    Dear Deb and Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I have many good memories of seeing her at your home on River Street. I also recall the necklace she wore – of a baseball – I believe. She was a wonderful woman – I know she will be greatly missed. I trust you will find comfort in the memories you have and in the God who walks with you.
