Dear Arthur and Donna,
Bob and I are so sorry to hear of the loss of your father. He was always so spry and young for his age. I still laugh when I remember the picture of the two of you floating along in a boat in his yard. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Arthur,
Mom and I are so sorry for the loss of your father. He was a very sweet and special man. Meme and I always remembered fondly our surprise meeting following the Jay Leno show at Mohegan Sun. She also enjoyed going over the house to play cards and board games with him and the gang. May good memories help you through this difficult time.
With deepest sympathy for your loss,
Susan and Kimberly
