    Dear Family Members

    I first met your Mom, Jennifer, David and Robert many years ago. After your Mom died, Jennifer always seemed to take charge for David and Robert’s appointments as well as her own. Please accept my condolences. Jennifer was the type of person who lived as fully as she could in spite of her disease. She was a wonderful role model of a person who focused on what she could do and not what she could not do. I am sure you will all miss her. Robert – I send my special condolences to you.

    Very sincerely yours
