"Dear Bob, My condolences for you and your sister at this time of your dear mother's passing . I remember the Skype calls that we arranged between your parents and Charlie, who grew up with them on or near Allendale. They shared memories and laughs, and I saw your mother's kindness and caring spirit. "
