Dear Penny,

I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Jim always with a smile on his face when I’d come home for the summer and you two were in the store. So many years together – so hard for you. Biggest of hugs. May God comfort you with your good memories, and let any harder ones fade.

prayers and love,
