Dear David,
Your father was a wonderful man, and I am so sorry to hear the news of his death. I vividly remember meeting him at your wedding. What a kind, gentle and loving person.

Dear David and Elizabeth: From everything you’ve told me, your dad was a really good man. It’s clear that you have absorbed the values that he and your mom passed on to you, and that the patience and good judgment you demonstrate are due in no small part to them and their parenting. While my heart goes out to you in your time of grief, it also swells with the admiration you must also feel in celebrating a life well-lived. Bruce and Liz

Dear David,
I am saddened to hear of your loss. You were blessed to have wonderful parents who obviously instilled in you valuable morals and awesome character traits.

On behalf of your father’s Long Meadow neighbors, I share our sadness at his passing. I learned of his death after the visitation, Joe and I are sorry to have missed it. The neighbors on his street and Blount will keep an eye on the house. Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do.
