  1. Dear Uncle Bill and James,

    I was very sorry to hear about Aunt Margaret. I have very special memories of us before you were even married and of us all growing up together. I know that you both will miss her alot but she is in a better place and you don’t have to see her suffer and not be herself.
    God bless you both and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Your loving neice,
