“Dear Tom,
The insurance checks have arrived finally, and I’m sending your check on to you with deep gratitude for your very kind and helpful planning and loving consideration for all our wishes in preparing for Bud’s funeral.

It was such a comfort to all of us to be in the presence of such fine Christian friends as you and your mother at such a very difficult time for us. We were so pleased and comforted by your efforts to present Bud as he really was; a pleasant, sturdy, proud Christian gentleman, husband and father. He really looked just as we wanted to remember him.

Your sharing of your closeness and affection for your own father helped our children to accept the loss of theirs.

Your mother’s presence and loving concern was such a help to me, too.”
