I am writing to express how sorry we are for your loss. We will miss John so much.
Throughout the years, we've had the chance to get to know John well and we have come to value his friendship, kindness and thoughtfulness. We'll miss his laugh, and the good times we shared. John's memory is held deep within our hearts. He would want us to remember how happy he was and how fun he was to be around.
We wish we could be with you right now to comfort you, to help you, to hold you, and to pray with you. But even though we are miles apart, we're still here for you at any time to talk, to listen, and to comfort you. We'd really love to hear from you - just give us a call (insert phone number).
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
With love and sympathy,
Susan and Jeremy Jackson
