Dear Sandra, I am so sorry for your loss as you grieve the death of Uncle CL and I am sorry that I am out town and unable to be there today and love you in person. I have sweet memories of time with Uncle CL as a child and later with you both as a teen and adult. I am so sorry I missed seeing you when we came to the house last year. Thank you for loving Uncle CL so well and so faithfully.
