    Dear Betty Lynn and family,

    I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. We are never prepared for the loss of a parent. I hope you are well. I had tried to reach you via Facebook recently and would so love to hear from you. You can contact me at my e-mail address (though not to be published here, I trust you will be able to see it.) I have carried you in my prayers for many years and will continue to do so.

    Much love to you and your family.
