Not sure what to say?

Dear Madeline and Val,
We are so very sorry to hear of Uncle Jim's passing. Oh, how I remember the times you would come to Weed and Val would swim in Nani's pool!!!!! Know that our prayers are with you. God Bless your family. Thinking of you.

Love, Sheri and family

Dear Madeline and Valerie,
My most sincere and deepest sympathy during this difficult time. Just know that Jim is with God and forever free from pain. Madeline, you have been exemplary in the love and tender care that you have given Jim all the years of your marriage, through thick and thin, you were there for him. I admire your great strength and the great love that you demonstrated.
Valerie, I'm sorry for your great loss, and I admire the wonderful support and encouragement...

Valerie and Madeline,
My mom just called to tell me about Mr. Cortese. I'm so sorry. I just loved him and have so many fond memories of him growing up. Every time I eat red onion and tomato salads with french bread I always think of him. You are all in my prayers and thoughts.
