    Dear Bob and Jean,
    We are sorry to learn of Alice’s passing. You were a caring brother and sister-in-law. We had some things in common, such as her love of lighthouses and of course a great relationship with Bob and Jean. Although we never met her, we know from what Bob and Jean would tell us that she was a special lady . Our sincerest condolences.
