Dear Fite Family:

Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved. There are never any right words to express how deeply sad I am for the pain your family is enduring at this difficult time.

As Chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations, I am sincerely thankful for his valiant service in defense of our rights and freedom.

His commitment to family, friends, our community, and to serving our great nation leaves a wonderful legacy. May the love and the wonderful memories you shared with him help you when you need it most. He will never be forgotten, and your family will be remembered in my prayers.

Carol, Linda Debbie,

Much love and hugs. Uncle John is an inspiration to anyone who copes with a lifelong challenge like diabetes. He never let it win, and a life 94 years long is a victory by any standard.

I know he longed to be with Aunt Mary and his brother and sister, and I hope the fact that he is with them now gives you some small measure of peace.

Love, Elizabeth
