Not sure what to say?

Paul joins me in sending our sincere sympathy on the death of your dear Phyllis. I remember her as a dedicated walker both for her own pleasure and to give her "kids" their daily exercise. We had some pleasant chats as she passed our house on her route. Her smile and friendly manner and interest in what was being said made these few moments memorable. I am truly sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Mary Jane St.Amour
