Dear Aletta
I just wanted to express my gratitude to you for your kindness and compassion.

Thank you so much for making the effort in forwarding to me the funeral letter and bulletin. It was lovely to see recent photos of Lisa, which I will always treasure. My immense appreciation.

It is absolutely surreal for me to face that within the hour this beautiful person will be no more in body.
With her …. goes a part of me.

Thank you for my good bye to her. Very sweet of you.

It is comforting to know that she was in your good and loving hands.

Regards and in thanks.

To my love:
“My funny Valentine ….you made my heart smile.”
” Stay funny Valentine …please stay”

I will always think of you and will miss you … as I always have.
Rest, my love, the pain and suffering is no more.
