Dear Mrs. Gavens and family:
I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Mr. Gavens. You were both so very kind to my parents when my Mom was sick and to my father after she passed away. I know my parents were so very fond of you both, you were such wonderful friends and neighbors. I know my father enjoyed chatting with Seymour about sports and especially about Sy's beloved UConn Huskies. My sincerest condolences.
