Dear Linda and Family,
My thoughts are with you are with you at this sad time. Deepest sympathy.

Dear Linda, Steve, and Families,
We're so sorry about your Mom. I remember her at Gary's funeral still having a good memory; I had no idea then that she was about to turn 90. Her hobbies and her grand and great grandchildren must have kept her young. You're in our thoughts and prayers.
