Dear Mary and family,
My most heartfelt sympathies to you all on Bob's passing. I had no idea. No one from back home told me. On occasion, I look through the obituaries on my computer to see if there are names of people I know. Today, I saw Bob's name on the list. May the Lord be with you through this difficult time. You two were always there for my family when we lost a loved one. I thank you for that, and apologize for not being there for you. Bless you all. May your faith carry you through.
Sincerely,
Emmy (Cooke) LaRiccia
Burns and Vera's daughter
