    Dear Fr. Bob and Marty;

    I was so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. We graduated from Ashland High School. It has been several years since I’ve seen Meg but we have corresponded over the years. I do not think I am able to attend the viewing due to time constraints which saddens me because I am not able to express by condolence to your family in person.
    Your mother was a dear friend and will be missed by me and many other friends.
    God bless you and yours.
