Dear Elisa and Kira and Joy,
We were so sorry to hear about Bob. I greatly enjoyed getting to know him as a band parent in the last few years. We enjoyed reminiscing about our own band days too. I know how proud he was of Kira and her trombone playing. Please accept our deepest sympathies.

Dear Lois,
I am so sorry to read about your son's death. Much too soon. We lost my 47 year-old-old nephew a few years ago to a ruptured appendix. Please know that you have my sincerest sympathy.
With love, Sue Poriss
