    Dear Elena, Steve, and Family:  My deepest condolences to each of you on the death of your mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother.  It is never easy to let our loved ones go, but her soul is now at peace and in the hands of God.  Every time you share the stories of your mom, you share her love.  Whether your memories bring smiles or tears, we believe and know in our hearts that her love for you will live on in each one of you. That is the greatest legacy of a life well-lived.  I am sending much love and many prayers to you during this sad time.
