    Dear Corinne,

    Patrick and I extend our deepest condolences to you. They extend equally to Linda, Peter, and your whole family. We both met Rick only a few times, but you spoke of him often, and it was not hard to see that he was a good, good man. Whilst even faith does not provide all the answers or explain the “whys” of life, it is still the only thing that Patrick and I can cling to to get us through. So with this, we will be praying for you and the whole family for the graces you need to get through and live in peace and strength with the coming of each day. May every blessed and cherished memory of your life together with Rick remain strong in your heart and triumph over the difficulty of the past weeks. Where he is now, he will not forget you either. God bless you.
