Not sure what to say?

Ricky Jay was not only a Master Magician, he was a humorous, kind and humble person who always thought first of how best to please others. His knowledge of legerdemain was vast, but his capacity to entertain was limitless. His talent is unequalled, and his humility about how incredibly skilled he was, served to double the joy of every effect. We will miss you forever, RJ. I just know that you have some of the angels asking each other, "How DID he do that?"
With admiration...

Dear ChrisAnne,
We want to express our deepest condolences on your loss of your wonderful husband. My parents admired him greatly and always enjoyed his humor, generosity of spirit, and intelligence. My mom wishes that she would be able to express her condolences in person, but we are not sure how to get in touch with you. Please know that our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
