    Dear daughters and other kin of glamorous Orpha,

    I met and knew of your mother through her niece, Yvonne Meyer Johnson, who has been a dear friend since kindergarten. The last time I saw her was at her sister’s (Yvonne’s mother’s) funeral. She looked uniquely wonderful and healthy then, and was engaged in arranging a lunch date with Yvonne. I am surprised to learn of her passing so soon after her sister’s death. You have my sympathies in your time of grieving.
