A Dear, Dear Friend

After my father passed away I received lots of cards and tons of gift baskets to cheer up the family and let us know that people were thinking of us. The nicest card came from Anne who over the past decade has become one of my dearest friends.

Dearest Lisa*,

I just want to let you know how sad I feel about the loss of your father, and how much I appreciate you taking the trouble to call and let me know what happened. I'm sorry I didn't stay on the phone long, but I felt so bad for you that I was having difficulty keeping my voice steady.

Please give my condolences to everyone in your family, especially your mother, and know that I will be thinking of you until we can get together.

With love,
