Humble Condolances

“I am very sad to have heard this news, Deborah was a wonderful and kind hearted person. It pains me the loss her family has suffered and knowing anything I could say would sound so hollow and empty in the shadow of this tragedy. To her husband John and her family I offer my deepest condolences, and if I can be of any help just ask and I will do whatever is within my power to help. Know that Deborah will be missed by many.”
