Dear Uncle Carl
I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of Aunt Vera.
It’s too bad I didn’t get the chance to see her, after she
was put into the nurseing home, I’ll just have to remember
her the way she was the last time I got to have a talk with
her. I’m really going to miss her. Ivan also wants to send
his condolence to you.
