Dear JoAnn and Mike,
We were heartbroken to learn of the loss of your son, Shane. What a huge challenge for you, Ian and Riley. Having come to know and love Riley through her deep friendship with our granddaughter, Whitney Lewis, we feel connected to your family. (I remember the girls’ graduation party, working with you and Michael in the Lewis fun!)

Bob and I are praying for your family as you learn to live in this “new normal”. I know you have many friends to gather around you and support you in prayer. That being said, however, we would be honored to help in any way possible. Don’t hesitate to call on us, either yourselves or through Riley.

God bless you and keep you,
Bob and Pat Seeley

Dear Mike, Joan, Ian, and Riley,

Terre and I are so sorry for your loss. If there is anything we can do, please let me know. I'm willing to help in any way. I am truly sorry for the struggle you face and think of you often.
I wish I had the right words, just know I care and hope for all good things for you and your family.
You and your loved one will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
My memory of Shane is what a wonderful meal he prepared for us at Thanksgiving. I am thankful we were included and happy to have known Shane if only for a brief time.
Please know I am a phone call away.

With Sympathy,

Oscar Heydari
