Dear Aunt Mary Ellen and family:
I was so saddened to hear that Uncle Jack had passed. I have many fond memories of him from when I was growing up as he was just becoming a teenager when my parents married,and I came along the next year. I had many good times staying over at the house in Berea, and he was the person who helped me buy my very first new car.
Leo and I were looking forward to touring Ireland with you and Jack as soon as we were able to get some free time - we should not have put that off.
Our deepest sympathies to you and the family as you adjust to his loss and this new phase of your lives. We will keep him in our thoughts and prayers.
I am not able to come for the services.
Love to all Mary Ellen
