Dear Sarah and family,

I want to tell you how sorry I am to hear about Dane's passing. I remember when you and he came to rehearsal for "Dearly Departed" together, and Dane was always watching and smiling and laughing at our antics. I pray for you and your family at this sad time Sarah and wish you all the best.

I will miss watching Dane feed all of his creatures and talking to him over the fence. He always watched out for me, and now it's my turn to watch out for Sarah. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
