M, so sorry for your loss of (now) both of your parents. But what a joy you got to enjoy them for such a long time. Loss is always hard regardless though.

Just wanted you to know I was thinking about you.

Helen was a beautiful lady, inside and out. She was loved by so many. She and Hugh impacted so many lives, including mine. My prayers are with you and the family.

Helen was a fine beautiful lady. I know that Hugh loved & took great care of her for many years. I always told many people that they were the picture of true love. I hope when she got to heaven and saw Hugh she turned around and said ” I love you.” Rest In Peace, my sweet neighbor.
