  15. To Kathy Milly and Rouly,
    I was deeply saddened to hear of Auntie Kerry’s passing. I offer my condolences on behalf of my wife Rebecca and I, and my late mother Luella. Kerry was a frequent penpal of my mother and I, and an unbeatable scrabble opponent , I also found out. Though I was only able to converse with her online, an immense kindness was inevitably conveyed through the words she typed and the smile in her photographs. Our prayers are with you.
