Dear Dennis,
I was so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. We were all so lucky to have the parents that we did, the guidance that they gave and the help that they provided in our lives. I’m sure your mother was especially proud and pleased with the success that you’ve had in your life. And while there’s no replacement for a parent, it’s nice to know that they’re in a better place.
