On the back
P.S. I like to think that all of us in the world are like one big family in a way that when one gets sick we should do our utmost to pray for that person. Even though we may number in the billions there is One in the cosmos who knows our problems & our concerns & whose arms of faith & love as never too small or narrow to unfold us all exp. in times llike these & whose presence is not so far away that we never feel that we are alone. Because He cares.
Again Love Cynthia [redacted]

Dear Mrs. White,
I'm enclosing a note to say how sorry my grand parents & I were to hear about your son Ryan's death. You have our deepest sympathies. I like to think that Ryan was like a light that shone in a world of fear & ignorance. In the past like many people I too thought that Aids was somebody elses disease & that people like that were to be shunned. But I know differently now from articles I've read & also because of what
Ryan has shown us. I know he was a courageous young man to be commended. Even though we may not be related by blood we are never the less human beings created in God's image & should learn to love & respect others regard less of who they are. I know Ryan will be sorely misses. Your in our prayers.
Sincerly yours, Cynthia [redacted]
Mr. & Mrs. Norman [redacted]
P.S. I hope you don't think that the message I wrote
