Dear Herm,
Heidi and I are very sorry to hear of Shirley's death. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy. I hadn't seen Shirley for many years until the last couple Novak reunions. It was really nice seeing her and the family, and meeting you at that first reunion. We also enjoyed your subsequent visit to our home which gave us an opportunity to get caught up and get to know you. Please also extend our condolences to the girls and their families.
Bob and Heidi
