Dear Jodi and family
You are in my thoughts and prayers.  It has been a very long time since I’ve seen your mother but she became more beautiful over the years.  I always say “they” are waiting for us, just around the corner.  I’m glad we got to talk last week and I will see you soon.  As I told you when we talked, I work Saturday a.m. this week and then my grandson’s 1st birthday party is early afternoon or you know I would be there tomorrow for you.
Love and prayers to your entire family.
