Dear Granville, I was saddened to hear from Amy that your wonderful, loving wife Cynthia passed away. It is always very difficult to loose a loved one especially a wife. Frances and I send our love and prayers as you journey alone without Cynthia. We all will miss her. Love always Elaine & Frances.

While I did not know Cynthia personally I do feel like I know her having listened to you talk about her during our Saturday morning meetings. You were a great care-giver a role I also had for 4 years until my wife passed last October. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you heal through this loss.
