    So sorry to learn of your loss of a very dear lady. Mrs. keeling always was so pleasant, and I have fond memories of an impromptu dinner we had together one night at Shoney’s where we had such a nice visit. I’m sorry I cannot be with you for her memorial service, but I will be thinking of all of you. I know you are blessed with many good memories that will help you through the days ahead.
