Dear Mary, you were my aunt by marriage, yet you were kinder to me than several of my blood kin were. Your kindnesses have been appreciated by me more than you could ever know. I so enjoyed and looked forward to the lunches we had together at various local restaurants in recent years, and will miss them – and you – so very much. I’ll always treasure these memories.
