    EVEN THO I ALREADY EXPRESSED MY CONDOLENCES PRIVATELY 2 UNCLE DICK AND HIS CHILDREN, I WANTED 2 DO SO AGAIN IN THIS MANNER:

    TO ALL FAMILY MEMBERS:
    I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS OF IANNE AS A WIFE, MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER. IT IS NEVER EASY 2 LOSE A MOTHER OR GRANDMOTHER AND IT CERTAINLY ISN’T EASY 2 LOSE A LIFE PARTNER WHICH IANNE WAS 2 MY UNCLE. IT IS NOT EASY 2 LOSE A SISTER EITHER.

    IANNE AND I WERE NOT THAT CLOSE AND I DO HAVE SOME REGRET ABOUT THAT BUT THERE WERE TIMES WHEN I WAS IN HER COMPANY AND SHE WAS VERY GRACIOUS AND MADE ME FEEL WELCOME.

    I WAS SORRY 2 HEAR OF HER ILLNESS AND HER QUICK PASSING BUT AT LEAST SHE IS NOT SUFFERING ANYMORE.

    MY THOUGHTS R WITH MY UNCLE AND HIS FAMILY.
