My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Pat. If there is anything I can do, don't hesitate to let me know. bab Beth Ann Betts, January 19, 2008 On the blessedly few occasions when I have had to write to convey my condolences, I am always at a loss for the right words to express. Almost nobody is good at them. They are hard to write. It is always difficult to know what to say. They are hard to read. You know that no matter how well you do it, it is still going to be painful to read, because that is just the way it is. Dear Tricia, I offer my condolences to you on the passing of your mother. There is obviously no good time or way for someone whom you care about to die, even though we all know that death is inevitable, and that dying concludes our journey on this earth. Tricia, you and your family are in my prayers to have your heart mend and your memories stay strong. May you be spared further sorrows. Sincerely, Lawrence L. Sharp, III Cleveland, OH Lawrence L.
