Dear Mrs. Hammer (and Family)
I am so sorry to hear of the recent loss of your husband (and beloved family member). Both you and he influenced my life in such a positive way growing up (you, as my third grade teacher, and he, as my basketball coach at Learwood). Though many years have passed since I have seen either of you, the childhood memories you helped me create have always held a special place in my heart. May Mr. Hammer rest in peace, and may the knowledge that he touched so many lives in such a positive way help to soothe the pain of his passing. He will be dearly missed.
