Dear Chuck,

We were so sorry to hear of the sudden loss of your dear sister, Trisha. It's times like this we search for words of comfort to extend to our friends, any small word or gesture to let you know we care and we are thinking and praying for you. Words fails us, gestures seem empty. But please know, if there is anything we can do - just call. Kathy & Ken.
