  16. Hello Luisa, We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your brother Ernesto. You and family will be in our prayers. I am sorry, but since the loss of Bryna-Jayne, I have not been able to attend funerals without a great deal of anxiety and panic, so we will not be in attendance. But we will be there in thoughts and prayers. Let mom know that I will call in several weeks (I remember what those first months were like) and maybe we can get together including you too of course, for coffee. Please let mom know how sorry we are,
    Margaret and Terry Miller
