Gail , Mrs. Newman and your family,
We are so profoundly sorry for your loss and hope that your love for family that you have treasured these many years help you through the grieving times ahead.

My dear cousin Sarah and all her lovely family, deepest sympathy to you all. Sarah, we grew up on Dogberryhill Road, went to school together and met our future husband around the same time. They were already friends. Then, life happened and we moved away, and over the years we only got to see each other occasionally, usually in Church or at flower service. I haven’t seen Bob in years. When I did know him, he was a quiet, sweet man. I know he hasn’t been well in latter years. You will miss him, but thank God he is free from pain. You know that one day you will all be together again, where there is no more pain and suffering. Sarah, this has been a sad time for you, losing dear sister Mildred and now Bob. Love and blessings to you all. Shirley and Charlie xx
