Dear Sherrie and Jeannie,

I was so sorry to miss Alice's service the other day. She was such a sweet lady and I really enjoyed getting to know her and to help her. Glad she was able to move to the nice new nursing home so Heather was close by. You were lucky to have her so long! I lost my dad at 17 and mom at 40, so I really think about things like this. Take care now, both of you, and all the grandkids!
