Mrs. Anna,
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Robertson. I was unaware until last evening when reading the State Port Pilot. As you know, I was extremely fond of your husband and he always greeted me with a smile, a hug and kind words when I would run into him at the hospital. He will certainly be missed. My prayers are with you and the family.
