Not sure what to say?

Dear Edward & Beverly, so sorry for your loss. Even though I had just met her this year & only knew her a short time, I enjoyed the visits that Miss Freckles & I had with her. Please accept my deepest sympathy. I see that she had Denson in her background. My maiden name is Denson.
