    Dear Dave & Family,

    I have just learned of your mom’s passing and I know that your hearts must be broken. Please accept my and Tess’ condolences.
    I remember meeting her, she was kind and sweet and loved her family so much. She had mentioned wanting to have lunch with my mom and me sometime, only wish I could have that time back to do it.
