Dear Linda and Family, I was saddened to see that your mother had passed away, and I would like to tell you how very sorry I am. I could not attend the wake because I've just had major surgery. The obituary was lovely, and I'm sure you feel her loss acutely. She sounds like she was a wonderful, proud and caring person, toally devoted to her family, and for that I'm happy for her. In my temple prayerbook, there's a passage that reads, "They have faded from our sight, but they live on in God's presence, where nothing good can perish. In the Eternal, all beauty shines forever." You all have my sincerest condolances. Jeanne
