Dear Shirley,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear Bill. He was a fine man and especially tolerant of me when I was omnipresent at the Wolfe household. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. You both were very important to me then and now and I thank you for all of your time, attention and care. The distance between us does not lessen my feelings for you or Kathy, Karen and Kelly.
