    Dear Shane,
    I was sorry to read of your grandma’s passing. She sounds like a wonderful lady who gave a lot to her family, community and best of all, was a fellow teacher! I’m sure it’s not an easy time for you but I hope you know that you have a friend who holds you in her heart. I’m sending you prayers, positive thoughts and hope for peace of mind. Take heart to know that she’ll always be with you through your loving memories.
    With sympathy and love,
