Dorothy, I
I just now saw in the paper that Richard died, and of course my heart was saddened for you. I know you must be grieving terribly. You were such a special person in my life during my career at Brady Elementary, and I just wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you. Your faith is such a source of strength at this time, I'm sure, because the pain of losing a child is unimaginable. I also have no doubt that you have the love and support of so many friends and family.
I love you,
Jan Gardner
