    To Joanne, Andy, Rachel, and Emily:
    I extend my sincere sympathy to you in this time of sorrow and loss.
    The loss of a loved one is difficult, but keeping alive the memories you shared is important. When our daughter died three years ago, a friend gave us a card displaying this quotation from “The Little Prince”: “In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars are laughing, when you look at the sky at night.” I look at that card every day and smile at the memory of my daughter.
    May God bless all of you.
