I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Mary’s passing. We have been best friends since grade school. I will miss all the great phone conversations we had in the last few years. My blessings to all her family.

Dear Charles,

So sorry to get this terrible news. My heart goes out to you, your girls and their families. This suddenness had to be so very shocking. But take comfort in knowing you did everything possible you could and that she didn’t have a long painful battle. If you ever you need to talk, I’ve always been your friend.

With love,
