Dear Dick: You have my deepest sympathy. I’ve known Karen since first grade. In fact we were e-mailing each other and she asked me if I remember when we made our first Holy Communion. She told me it was October 7, 1947, which of course I didn’t remember. About a month ago she told me of the surgery she was going to have and asked me to pray for her. This comes as such a shock for everybody. Again my deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Beth and Family:

Please accept our sincere condolences on the passing of your dear mother. We are so sorry about your loss.

Although we never met your mother, I know how much she meant to you and the girls. Through your stories of her love of life, and her loving support of you and your family, we feel as though we knew her. I know she was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and wife and that her absence will be felt by many people.

Beth and family,
Thinking of all of you at this very sad time and remembering Karen as the very special person she was! My prayers are with you.
