My Dear Friend Jonathan: My deepest sympathy to you on your great loss. You spoke often of your mother and were justifiably proud of her. She had heartfelt compassion. We are the lesser for her leaving. Stay strong and continue to do as she would want you
to do. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you. Mike Cummins
