    Jenny and Mike and family. We were so sorry to read in today’s paper that you lost your mom, Jenny. We are so very sorry for your loss and are sending you our sincerest sympathy. Please know that our thoughts are with you and hoping that your special memories will help guide you through your grief in the days, weeks, and months to come. Your mom was way too young to have this happen to her. Hoping that it will help a bit to know that others care and are thinking of you. Take care now.
