Dear Heather, Richard and Ethan,
I am so sorry for your loss and thinking of you and all the family at this sad time. I still fondly remember when they just got married and how happy they were (in the 70’s in Glasgow and visiting in Oxford) And more recently, how they expressed how proud they were of you both and spending time with Ethan.
With deepest sympathy and lots of love, Jacqueline
