    Dear Evelyn, Shirley and Linda,
    This is a very belated condolence but heartfelt nevertheless. In 1952 I became your live-in babysitter when I was only 15. Dave and Evelyn were my second parents. How well I remember the fur coat they gave me and the winter boots. I was more blessed in their home than I was ever anyplace else. Shirley and Linda were like my own sisters. I shall always remember you.
    All the best to all of you. Thank you Evelyn.
