    Catherine, our hearts are broken
    We are so sad that we are not able to be there to pay our respects, but We know you would understand this trip would be too traumatic for John.
    You have been privileged with a beautiful family who love you. Cathy and Theresa, please accept our deepest condolences. We love you both
