Dear Mrs Paul
Your daughter and my wife's young passing give us understanding of God's plan. For you gave me counsel 3 weeks ago on my wife's passing knowing what lay ahead of you. For you offered up your day for her. Now I will offer my day for your daughter. Let us pray that God shows a light on our families. May He Bless and Keep us Always. Amen
