    I was sorry to read about your loss. I remember Kim when she was a little girl when she was staying with her wonderful grandmother Mrs. Surles who was making special clothes for me. All of you have my deepest sympathy and will remain in my thoughts and prayers during this time.

    Your grin and laughter will be passed down through the generations as the most enduring memories of you.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with those who suffer in silence.
    If you happen to be in the air, let me know and I’ll keep an eye out for you.
