    Dear Laura,
    I was so sorry to learn of your Mother’s death. It doesn’t matter how old we are having our Mother leave this planet is a life changing event. You and your siblings have my deepest sympathy. I remember you and you Mom coming to kindergarten at North Star and I know that was a long time ago so you probably don’t remember me but I remember you well. You even were at our wedding. Just know at this time I’m thinking of you and hope you can come to a place of peace.

    Mrs. Nagel
