Dear Kari, Kristi, and Kelly,
My heart is with each of you and your families. Your Mom was a remarkable woman and was such a special friend and next door neighbor during our time in Tam O’Shanter.
She (and the three of you) were always so supportive of Heather, Gretchen, and me for which I’m so grateful.
My thoughts are often with each of you. Much love,

Kelly and family,
I very sorry to hear that you lost your mom. I was glad to get a chance to meet her before she passed. No doubt you will all miss her bright spirit and comforting presence tremendously. Sending hugs and sympathy to all my cousins in Washington.
Diana Archibald, your 3rd cousin
