Relation: A friend of Dorothy and Eric

Dear Dorothy and family,
I am so sorry to be so tardy in sending you my heart-felt condolences upon hearing of Eric’s death. I am shocked. He was always so full of life and so interested in everything, music, all things natural and scientific and making sure information was passed along, not withheld but shared. . Please put my late note down to inattention and our locked-down situation. I had not heard of his passing. I will miss him. But Dorothy, my heart goes out to you. You and Eric were such good companions! May your heart be stalwart.
Fond regards, Mary (Who once enjoyed your house and wee dog, house-sitting)
