Dear Brenda and Family,
It was one of my greatest joys to meet you and get to know you at Southwest Christian Care. I felt so badly that I had to be away for awhile, and then just saw this notice today, after arriving from out-of-town again.
Your mother Sara was one of the finest women I have ever met. She was bright, and full of spirit, and made everyone who came into her room feel welcomed and comfortable. I know you have heard this often, but you were certainly blessed that she was as healthy as she was for such a long life. Now she is happy in God's hands, rejoicing in the reunions with others in your family who have already gone to heaven.
I want you to know I will never forget you both. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I send you another hug, Brenda, and hope this week is going as smoothly as possible, and that you are surrounded by lots of family.
With love,
Sue
