Dear Ferrara Family:
I am so very sorry to learn of the loss of Michael just earlier this evening, and so shortly after I connected with Deena, and we reminisced about the loss of my sister, Rosalyn.
Please know that I am thinking of you, and wishing you all peace
and comfort at this time of great loss and sadness.
