Dear Diane and Jim - I was sorry to hear of the loss of Diane's mother, Betty. My thoughts are with you both. Betty was very lucky to have a family such as yours - you surrounded her with love and affection for a very long time during her illness. That same affection will carry you through this as well. Sincerely, Caroline Coligan
