    Dear Aunt Pat; My thoughts and prayers are with you and your children. I’m so sorry for your loss. Uncle Jim always made me feel welcome in your home and I especially remember how well you
    and Uncle Jim cared for Pam and I during the time our father was sick and in the hospital. So generous and loving. You and Uncle Jim let me pick out art supplies at the store which you happily purchased. Your love and support helped me get through that very difficult time. And despite the distance, I hope you can feel my love and support helping you through this difficult time. Uncle Jim will be missed dearly by so many.
    Love, Jackie
