Dear Lisa,

I’m so sorry to hear the loss of your Mum and couldn’t be with you at this time.
I’ve only met with her a couple of times and thought she was a pleasant woman.
I recall you helping with her appointments and shopping.
You were a great daughter to her and I know she will miss you the same.
May fond memories of your Mum bring you comfort during this time and peace with our Heavenly Father.

Love your friend
Kimberly Johnson
