Dear Martha, 
            I am so terribly sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved husband.  I read about it in the office memo as everyone was asked to observe a moment of silence.  I cannot imagine how you must feel at this time.
  John was a wonderful husband and it showed every time he visited you at the office.  I will never forget the time he surprised you with flowers and balloons for your birthday!  You were so happy and he enjoyed showing how much he cared about you.
             I wanted to extend my deepest sympathies for you and let you know that you have my support.  Please call me at anytime if you need to talk.  I will handle things at work for you so that you can take care of things at home.
  We are all thinking about you and keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.  I know you’re a very strong woman and we admire you very much for that.  I hope that strength serves you now in your time of need.

We send you our prayers in this time of grief

Elaine Dorsey
