Dearest Eydie, Jayna sent me the news of your Mother's passing - a woman I am delighted to have met at the party you gave for Jessica. As we left the party that day, I knew she was one of those women I'd like to have spent time with.
While I did not know her I know you....and a young woman as talented and thoughtful as you tells me a lot about your Mom. I was touched by the relationship between the two of you and so I know your missing her will be a time of mourning and grief - as it should be.
In the midst of your grieving, may you find moments of solace from the words of one of my favorite philosophers - Winnie the Pooh, who said: How lucky I am to have someone that makes saying goodbye so hard.
Know I am holding you close in my heart, my prayers and my love.
Charlotte Lankard, Jayna's Mom
