Sarah, we were so sorry to hear about Uncle John. He was so good to visit Dad when he was sick, and Dad treasured those moments. How lucky he has been to have you by his side all these years. We send our deepest condolences on your loss and will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
Much Love,

Dear Sarah,

I am sitting here with Florence and telling her about her brother. She is so sad. She is 97 now and lives in assisted living. Lots of memories are flooding through her mind. She wishes she could hug you. She is sending loving thoughts to you and condolences. Please take care and know that we are all thinking of you.
