Dear Lawrence Buckley,
As I am sure you appreciate the past two weeks have been extremely upsetting. It never is easy but I must thank you for all your assistance at this time. Your kindness has made things easier, and I felt that your thoughtfulness has eased my way through all this. Our family has needed your services on two other occasions, both my mother and my brother-in-law. In all cases you have served us with kindness and understanding.
