Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Sarah,

I learned of your mother's passing today and I have a very heavy heart this evening.

Your mother and I enjoyed a very close friendship for many years at the Malden Hospital, Everett and North Conway.

She was a woman who adored her two girls, grandchildren and family and I loved her dearly.

I cannot be there because I just moved to Florida but will forever hold her in my heart, thoughts and prayers as well as the fond memories that we shared.
