Dear Mr. Ellis,
Will miss seeing you come through the drive-thru with your wife in the passenger side. I remember when you and your wife were going on a picnic in the mountains a few years back, with your picnic basket in the back seat of your car. I thought that was so sweet, and it was that day that you became my favorite couple(that I have talked about for years). Sorry I can't make it to the service, but I am working.
Sincerely,
David (from the bank)
