    Dear Uncle John and children,
    We were so sad to hear about Aunt Hugi. She was such a lovely person and I know you will miss her dearly. I remember how proud she was of all her children and their accomplishments, how she enjoyed the details of their lives and structured her life around being available to help others. I wish I had been able to see her over these last years. We are thinking of you all and praying for you at this sad time.
    Love, Barb, Jack, Kyle, and Dylan
