Dear Shannon and family,
We are so sorry for your loss and are praying for you during this very difficult time. We are so glad we had the opportunity to meet your Dad this Fall at our neighborhood Halloween party, and hope your memories of that special visit will warm your heart in the days ahead.
We will be thinking of you during the service tomorrow and wish could be there to give you a big collective hug. Instead, we are making a group donation to the American Diabetes Association in your father's name.
With much love and our deepest sympathy,
Your friends in Addison Place
