Dear Ron and Mike, I was shocked and saddened to hear about the death of my old friend.  I sincerely regret that we lost touch.  She was a good woman, good wife, Mom and Friend.  Life sadly takes us on different journeys and sometimes we lose site of those who have meant so much to us. My heart is heavy with her lose, but I can smile at the crazy times we had together and the laughs and tears we had together.
