    Dear JoEtta, Cassie and your Mom: Kay and I are so very sorry to hear about your brother. I heard it on the news and recognised your address right away. It broke my heart for you. You and Cassie have always held a special place in my life and some of my very happiest memories revolve around our time working together. You made life bearable in more ways than you can imagine. Our hearts and prayers are with you all.
