Dear John, I was so sorry to hear that your father has died. He was a remarkable man, a pleasure to get to know him these past months at Springmoor. I hope it was some comfort to him to be cared for on E hall. Please accept my deepest condolances. Remember you were the most devoted son and your father was extremely proud of you. You were a comfort to him, especially in his last days.

Judi and I are very sad to learn of the passing of dear Jack. He was a thoroughly kind, noble person, and the love and care he gave to his dear wife during her long declining years was a model of faithful, enduring devotion.
