    Dear Laverne and Family;

    I met your Mother Marjorie when she visited my home in California many years ago with Marvin Skreslet my Dad who I have not seen in many years and I had the most lovely time with your Mother and she was the most fun loving person and so kind. I wanted to extend my deepest condolences to you and your family and I realize that it is a little late to be sending you this now however I do not stay in contact with Marvin any longer and I was wondering if you could write to me and let me know how he is doing and if he is okay. I am worried about him and if his health is in good shape. I always heard from Marvin what a wonderful family you all are and that he does stay in contact with you hopefully. I run several companies down here in the States and I am currently looking to move to Palm Springs so I will be moving shortly but the above email goes to my personal phone for my jewelry company and I would really appreciate it if you would find a few moments to drop me a line to let me know how he is. I really loved your Mother and found her to be of the sweetest personality and she was such a light in the world. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I wish you all the best through the holidays and in the New Year.

    Warmest Regards,
