  5. My wife I are very sorry for your loss of your mother, Elizabeth. I had the privilege of knowing Jill in the last few years and will remember her as a good friend. She was an important support for me and for others at very difficult times in our lives. We would talk about how our families were doing. I would like you to know how proud she was of you and her grandchildren. My life is richer from knowing Jill. We will keep you and your family in our prayers.
