    Dear Anna and Dara,
    I was sorry to hear of Raymond’s passing. I realize he was sick for a long time but his heart was so strong that I thought he might out live us. But he now can have rest, free of sickness and pain.
    You can feel proud of the fact that you continued to show him love and support over the years he was in the convalescent home.
    I wish I could be there with you but I hold you both in my prayers and send hugs and kisses.
    Love Cousin Helen
