To the Field family –

Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of your dear Mother. She sat next to me at dinner since she came to live at Tiffany Village and I was shocked and saddened to hear of her death.

Frances was a very pleasant lady and I enjoyed her company and our chats together with the others at the table.

I met one of the grand daughters last week as Frances was telling me how she missed her little cat who she had left at home or at the vet.

Sincerely Joan C Williams
