    Dear Susan,

    We are so sorry for the sudden loss of your dear mother. I’ll be writing you a real letter soon, but want you to know that you have our deepest condolences.
    Auntie Gloria and I both loved the sand sculptures at the beach. I still have the news clippings she sent. I’m glad at least she is with your dad and Paul. I know much she missed them.

    Love and hugs, Patti and Steve Eingorn
