My sincerest condolence on the death of your mother. Clara and I are friends from high school.  We were both majorites and your mother also went to lunch and/or breakfast with the class of ’53.  I’ve tried several times to call her and I’ve dropped cards in the mail to her as well as the newsletter.  I am so sorry that none of us knew she was ill.  I am so very sorry for your loss.

We were very sorry to learn of Clara’s passing.  We have known her for a very long time.  She was always pleasant when she was in our office.  Her family and pets meant the world to her. 
Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
