Dear Nadinne, 
  This note is tardy, but no less sincere. I really didn’t know where to send a card or I would have done so sooner. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy.  
   I was very surprised and sad to learn that Allan had passed.  I knew that he hadn’t been fully well in recent months, but I didn’t realize the seriousness of his condition.  I’ll miss seeing him here in my barber chair. I hope you can find some peace of mind in memories of happier times.  
Warm regards,
Dave Wagner
