Everyone is deeply saddened on the sudden passing of your husband. Jim was a great boss and all of us who worked for him thought the world of him and will miss him very much. I know this is a difficult time for you, however, if it is any consolation, Jim was very much admired and respected, and I can truly say that I have never heard an unkind word spoken about him.
Please extend our deepest sympathy to your wonderful family. May you all find the strength and courage to get through the days ahead.
Our thoughts and prayers will be with you.
