So sorry for the loss of your family member

To the family of Uncle Linus: Regretfully, I will be unable to attend the services. I did want to express my condolences to you as I am sure this is a very difficult time for you. I have fond memories of both your mom and dad. Both always treated me with kindness and a smile.
Although it is no doubt difficult for you to work through you sense of loss please take comfort in having been blessed with such a fine man as your father. Given that my mom is from a family of nine and my dad was one of eleven, I have many uncles. Uncle Linus was always one of my favorites.
Again, my sympathies.
Sincerely,
