Dear Sue,
Renu and I are deeply saddened by Neal's passing, and our heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family.
We have such fond memories of both of you, especially your wonderful wedding. It was a lovely wedding; we were also privileged to meet the rest of your family there. Your wedding dress was pretty, Neal looked dapper, both of you seemed very happy and little Katie ran around at the reception with your hat on. Your indulgence of the little one's taking part of your beautiful outfit is also memorable.
We note that you had 33 years of married life with Neal, and are happy. That both of you found your life partners and spent some glorious years together is inspirational. We hope that memories of the 37 years sustain you at this time and after.
Incidentally, we have a near-permanent link to you: we bought bedroom furniture from your mother and it is with us here in India. It brings back memories of all of you, including your gracious mother.
We remember Neal being gregarious, fun, engaging, and happy to be with you. We are glad of your time together. We pray that God gives you the strength to bear this separation. We know that - wherever he is - Neal is still easily and madly in love with you.
Scott & Renu Weiss
