  1. Dear Mary Jane,
    I was so sorry to read of Ivan’s death in the newspaper. I remember when Ivan would come to the Manor and you two would either walk or ride your bikes home from work. Ivan will be missed.

    Please know how much I care and praying for you in the weeks ahead.

    God is always with us. He is with you now, watching over you. May you find comfort and peace. Love, Rose
