Dear Marilyn,
I just saw the obituary for your mother and wanted to send my condolences. From when we were kids I remember her as being a beautiful, kind, loving person. I hope the wonderful memories you were lucky enough to have shared with her will help you during this difficult time. Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss.

Warmly, Paula
