"Randi- I was sorry to hear of the death of your husband, Allan. I wish we were closer so that I could attend the funeral in person. It is times like these that cause me to reflect on how much more difficult this would be without the knowledge of the gospel. Thank you for bringing the gospel to me back in middle school. I will always be grateful for that. With love and condolences, Kim Carman Miller"
