Dear Marian Kornwolf, I was sorry to see that your mother-in-law has passed. Dennis had often said how fortunate he was to be able to marry the (same type of) girl that his father did.

Loosing my mother-in-law recently and seeing you there served to remind me of how you and my wife are two peas in a pod! I know that Marie was a big part of your and your kids lives.

She is now at her eternal rest and her having been with you for so long has left a lasting and positive impression on you and all your kids and grandchildren for generations to come.

My sincerest sympathies.
