    I knew from what you said that he was in a bad shape. I will be thinking of you and your family so much in the coming months. You know my situation; and even though I would love to be there I am unable to do so. Our sincere sympathy to all of you in your loss. Lots of love from our house to yours. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
