    We were so sorry to hear about your Mom [Dora]. Your Dad kept us informed about all the family, and it was a shock to us that they were both gone. We will be with you all in our thoughts and prayers. The memories you have will help you through all of the hard times ahead. It has been a very long time since we have been west but we think of you all often as you were all a great part of our lives when we lived there.
    Our love to you all. We will miss her, them very much.
