  2. My dear Mrs S, I cannot tell you how surprised and sad I was to get the news that you are no longer with us. You never got over losing Mr. S so as sad as I am that you are no longer with us I am happy that you will be with the love of your life again and you will be happy together. You were such a devoted wife and friend. I thank you for being a good friend and family to me and my children who are all as sad as I am today. May God give grant you perfect peace in his bosom.

  3. To all the friends and family of Claire and Campbell, I never knew two finer people in my life. I am honored to have known them as colleagues but above all friends. The world is emptier now that they are gone but much richer for their having been here. Thomas M. Abbott December 9, 2013
