    Dear Norma, Mary, Carol, Bob and families,

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I know how difficult it is to have someone so dearly loved move on. It does not matter how expected a death may or may not be, it is devastating. I want you to know you are all in my heart and thoughts. I wanted to be able to tell you in person but circumstances are keeping me home. I love you all and wish I could ease your sorrow.

    Love to you all,
