Dear Dick & Family,

Pete & I are so sorry to hear of your loss. I have many good memories of Eileen at Highland Park. Eileen & I sat outside at Wynwood on a beautiful fall day last year. She was feeling well & growing stronger each day.

We are sorry that we were unable to be with you to celebrate her life. We are out of town for an extended time. May many fond memories warm your hearts & bring a smile to your faces.

With sincere sympathy & prayers,
