    Paul and Tom,
    So sorry for the loss of your dear mother. She spoke fondly of both of you and loved you as only a mother can. Her desire was always for your welfare. In addition to being my friend, Carolyn was the best neighbor anyone could ask. I am blessed to have had her in my life. Whereas I will miss her, I will treasure her memory. Please know that you both are in my prayers and know that I stand ready to support you in the days ahead.
