Not sure what to say?

I just found out that Uncle Donny passed on. It is hard these days to contact people however I prayed a lot for Uncle Donny recently and I think about my aunt Barb and cousins and wonder how you are doing. I remember my Uncle as a relaxing quiet person. Sorry for our loss of Dad, Granddad, Uncle.
