Dear Debbie and Family,

I arrived back in Columbus on an American Eagle flight on Wednesday evening and learned of the loss of your beloved husband. My deepest sympathy to you and the family. You are so young to have experienced so many losses. I know that the many beautiful memories that you and Tiney built together will carry you through this difficult time. God gave us memories that we may have beautiful roses in the midst of winter.
