Dear Tom and Mary. We'er so very sorry to learn of your loss today upon returning from a trip to Europe. Although we did not know your son personally we know that words cannot suffice to erase the loss of a family member and in this case your son Jeff. We share the grief you are feeling and want you to know that we are with you in the Spirit and will pray for
God's blessings and the showering of his mercy on your family. In Jesus' name!
Ross & Kathleen

It was great knowing you and seeing you with your dog in CA a few years ago. You went way to soon; I feel guilty surviving so long, you should be writing this about me.
