Dear Susan,

Please accept my sincere condolences. Sadie and my mother were good friends in a bridge club and garden club activities for many years. May they both rest in peace following long, full lives.

With deepest sympathy,

You may remember my mother had a security system in her house (two doors down from Sadie). Sadie was one of the names listed for the security company to call if there was an emergency when Mother was away. One night, sure enough, the siren on the system started blaring. The company called Mother. She didn’t answer. No, Woggie and Craig didn’t answer either. Moving on down the list, the security people called Sadie and explained the security alarm at Mother’s house was sounding off. With the driest voice only Sadie had, she responded, “..... well, what do you want ME to do about it?” 😆 She was a special lady, and you will always miss her; but she left you many memories to cherish.

To Susan, Mickey and Tina
I wanted to offer my condolences and deepest sympathies on the loss of you mother. She was such a wonderful lady and kind neighbor to us for all those years as we were growing up next door. I will always remember her kindness to welcome me into your home for a snack after those many afternoon backyard football games.
Having lost both of my parents, I know nothing will ever replace them; but hopefully you can hold on to the many special memories she provided as you were growing up.
I pray for your comfort and healing in this most difficult time; and hope you are consoled with the knowledge that she is finally at peace and reunited with your dad. Again, so sorry for your loss.
