    Dear Jen and family,

    Myrna and I want to express our sincere sympathies on your loss.
    You have left us Henry, but my memories go back a long way as we were growing up together in Montreal and the early sixties in Ottawa. You were not only my
    cousin, but a very good friend. I will not forget how you and Jen were willing to help me in my time of need. Our Skyping days may be over, but those days will last in my mind for sometime.

    Gone but not forgotten.
