    Hi Joan & Bernice and families,
    I would like to express my sympathy for the loss of your mother. I don’t remember her very well but you can see her beauty in her smile in the picture. The last time I saw you two was at Burstall Homecoming and I know how appreciative my mom was to see you. I am sorry I am not able to be at the funeral. Take care, my friends.
