    Dear Sister Barbara, Dawn and Phil,
    I am so sorry to learn about Terry’s passing. Sister Barbara, it has been a long time since I have seen you, and had only seen Terry infrequently over the years, but remember fondly our long-ago days of being neighbors. Dawn and Phil, though we have not met, I know Terry was very proud of her children, and you both will miss her terribly.
    With sincere sympathy,
    Virginia Curran
