Dear Ken, Doug and extended family:
My mother phoned to tell me the sad news of your mother's passing and thus this note of sincere condolence to you and your extended family. Our mothers had a strong friendship over many years. Indeed, both of your parents were very supportive of my mother over the years and because of their kindness and generosity, I now have many fond memories of our time together as children and particularly when we visited your place on McEwan. Your mom would often have fresh baked goodies for us as we would play throughout the house; whether it was downstairs admiring your trains Ken or upstairs in Bob's room with that neat dormer window in his bedroom, or on the great front porch Doug discussing the history of the universe and the "ice-age". For these and many more reasons, your folks were like relatives to me and so it is that I affectionately remember "Aunt Doris" as I'm sure my siblings do as well.
While I was not able to get to Windsor for the funeral, please know that you are in my thoughts and best wishes.
