XOXO, Elyse
August 3, 2021
I will always remember our talk on Normandy Beach, a couple of summers ago- CJ was so personable, so up, so full of life-he certainly was happy and was enjoying life and working hard. Craig and Kathie- you have done an amazing job with your family- the love in the room yesterday was palpable and Jake and Paige are amazing kids as well-hold on tight to each other-we are truly sorry for your suffering and our heart breaks for all of you and Elyse-it was clear they truly loved each other-you will all continue to be in our thoughts and prayers as you try to muddle through this tragedy. Much love, (your cousin) Mary Beth
