Thelma, I am sorry for the loss of your daughter. We met and spoke at the Inn in Amesbury Friday morning at breakfast, after the storm. You told me about your lovely daughter Sandy. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts.

Dear Thelma,
I send my deepest condolences to you at the loss of your daughter, Sandy. I remember you both from my time with the Paul Madore Chorale. We did some fabulous concerts together! At that time my last name was Rowen. I resumed my maiden name! May Sandy rest in peace! May you find comfort at this difficult time with family and friends.
