  1. Dear Joan and family,
    John and I would like you to know how truly sorry we were to hear of Bob's
    passing. In the short time we have had to get to know you both, we had felt fortunate to have you as neighbors.

    Please know we are thinking of your family and celebrate Bob's life and the time he was with us. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

    Sincerely, John and Paula
