Dear Joyce,
You might not remember me, but I handled a mortgage loan for you and Ed, around 2002 or so. I knew of his passing then, but never reached out to send you my regrets about his patriotism and subsequent passing. How courageous a man you were fortunate to spend the 10 or 20 years with... For whatever reason, I think of him and others who fought for US...our freedom, or liberties in the most wonderful country on earth. I salute him, and thank you for from my family to yours..
