Vanessa:

While I was aware of your husband's illness, I was sad nonetheless, to hear of his passing. While I knew him ever so briefly, I remember his quietness, and dry wit. May you and yours be comforted in this hour of bereavement, taking into account that he's no longer suffering. May you all remain strong, holding on to His unchanging hand.

Godspeed
