I want all of you to know how sorry I am to read of the death of your mother. Hopefully she didn't have to suffer much at her death and my prayers will be with each of you as you grieve her loss.

I've been out of town for several weeks and just read in the Daily Republic about Mary's death. I want to send my sympathy to the family and let you know my prayers and thoughts are with you.

Just received word of dear Mary's passing from our world to the one she so longed for! Our loss is truly heaven's gain.
She will be remembered fondly by our family for so many kind deeds - many of which still bring smiles!
Please know that you're held closely in prayer .
