    Dear Julie and Jim,
    How sorry I am to hear about your Dad.
    Please know that you are in my prayers during this difficult time.
    Both your Dad and Mom were very special. And how well I
    remember teaching both of you in First Grade…
    Unfortunately, I’m unable to be at the Mass for your Dad
    but will be with you in spirit.
    With deepest sympathy,
    “Miss Sally”
    (I wish I knew your addresses)
