Not sure what to say?

Dear Smith Children, I want you to know what fond memories I have of going to church with you and Maurice when you were children. We were able to attend Joyce's wedding. Maurice was a dear friend that I am glad to remember. I am sorry for her passing away.

Maurice was a great friend! We could laugh and talk together and enjoy what our children were learning and doing as they were growing up. When I was teaching 3rd grade and had to be absent Maurice would substitute for me and the students all enjoyed her teaching. My condolences to Joyce, Linda and Glen and families.
