    I was so saddened by the news of your mother’s death. Jane was such a lovely, intelligent woman. I am so glad to have known her. I have already missed this long-time neighbor since she moved to Givens Estate. She never failed to throw up her hand when we passed by the house. I know that you will miss her greatly. God will provide Grace and Love to sustain you through this time.
