Dear Larry and Loretta,
We are so sadden to hear of the loss of your daughter, you may not remember us but Bob worked with Larry for many years and I work at the downtown branch of Key Bank. We lost our youngest daughter Cathy to cancer at age 46, 8 years ago. So we share in your sorrow and know the pain you are feeling now and realize that there will always  be an empty chair at family gatherings, even so we always feel her presence with us. We share many happy and some sad memories at least one of us always cooks one of her favorite dishes and we always celebrate her Birthday with cake etc. this may seem strange to some people but it is our way of keeping her close to our hearts and minds and it has helped to lessen the pain and sorrow, but nothing will ever delete it entirely, it is just something you learn to live with but are still able to enjoy your life and your remaining loved ones.
