    Dear Carole,
    We are so sorry to have just heard about your Mom’s passing. She was such a wonderful lady. I remember her honesty with how she was feeling, and yet her strength and resolve. Since Mom (Jeanne Shaw) moved, we had missed seeing her … and I know Mom missed her terribly as their note passing had developed into the perfect way to keep in touch and yet respect each other’s privacy. Your Mom & Dad were a great team, and I’m sure she is happy to be with him again – now unburdened by these old bodies. All our love! And if you ever want to get together, please email us – I’m sorry, I don’t have your phone number. Remembering your beautiful Mom,
