Please accept my sincerest condolences and know that I am thinking of you. When I hang the stocking ornament that you sent me many years ago, I always remember our great year together and what a terrific person you are. I know much of that is due to your upbringing. Grief is particularly difficult during the holidays, but I know you will celebrate her life by sharing many wonderful memories. Please extend my sympathies to your family.
