  • Dear Mary Jane — Christopher and I were very saddened to hear about your brother, Paul’s, recent passing. I’m sure it was a great comfort to Paul to have you so near over these past several months. You were a wonderful sister to him. Hopefully, all the many happy memories you have of your time together in this life will mitigate some of the grief you’re now experiencing with his loss. Much love, Theresa
