Dear Courtney,
Please accept my condolences on the loss of your mother. We met in high school and, thanks to the alphabetical seating arrangement, I sat behind her in Grade 11. She was kind and friendly and fun-loving. Our paths didn’t often cross after high school, but I remember her fondly.

So sorry for your loss Courtney. Your Mother and I were high school friends and we shared many happy times together. We were in Young Christian Leadership together along with your Aunt Louise.
Life passes oh so quickly. Hold on to your memories. They will be forever with you.
God Bless You and the family
