    To Shirley and Family, With my deepest Sympathy to each of you on the loss of Don. I hope you will find comfort in remembering many wonderful times you all had together as a family. You may see Don in a sunset, or a butterfly that sits on your shoulder, or a Cardinal that lands on your window sill. There will be brighter days ahead. Know that your very own Guardian Angel will always be watching over you. You will
    miss him, but he will never be forgotten. With Sympathy and Friendship.
