Dear Mrs. Callahan,
I wanted to express my deepest sympathy. For many years, I have enjoyed seeing you and Mr. Callahan singing joyfully in the choir.
He was a very sweet man. I wanted to come in person tonight. However, the ice remains on the roads and two of my immediate
family had accidents today related to the ice. I hope you understand. I look forward to seeing you in person at the funeral.
Your and your daughters are in my prayers.
Sheryl Christman
