    Uncle Dick, Bobby, Jerry, Steven and Susie,

    Uncle Dick,
    I want you to know that I always felt that Aunt Evelyn was a special Aunt and a great Mom. She always was nice to us and really seemed to enjoy having us to your house when we were kids. I was sad when you moved to Tennessee years ago because it meant we could not see you and your family as often. It was always exciting for me to see you and Aunt Evelyn when you’d come back here for a visit. I am very sorry for your loss.

    I am so sorry of your Mom’s passing. I learned from Pat and David about how much you have done in the past months to help your Mom and Dad. I know what that’s like, and I know she was grateful for your efforts to help and comfort her. Take care, and know that Roger and I and the rest of my brothers and my sister are always interested in hearing news about you and your families.
