It is with the deepest sadness that I write this note. I am so sorry for your loss. She was one of my favorite patients and there was so little I could do for her. I know she is resting peacefully now. I only hope that you can be consoled by that thought. Know that you, the survivors, are in my thoughts and prayers. Selfishly I wish that I could come to the service and express my sympathy personally but know that it is sincere and deep. Jim Watson,M.D.
