Dearest Bob and Sondra,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Your mother was one of my very first "other" mothers and I loved her dearly. She was always so kind to send me a birthday card and Christmas card where she would let me know what was going on with you all.
It is so hard to loss our parents, but something about losing our mother is very hard. We can rest knowing that she is with your dad and her Lord and Savior.
Thank you for calling me Sondra. I have been in the hospital and did get your message.
Take care of yourselves.
Love always,
Jayna and Tim
