It was with great sadness that I learned of your mother and grandmother's passing. Although I haven't seen you for a while, I have often thought of you with great affection and pleasure of those wonderful times we have had together. Your mother was a wonderful person, talented and loving, and I know that your family has suffered a great loss. Please except my sympathy on your sad loss, and extend my condolences to the other members of your family. Sincerely, Debbie Kay Ferry
