    Dear Ms. Gehrke,
    I know that this has been a really difficult time for you. Caring for someone you love and watching them grow weaker instead of stronger takes a toll on anyone. I can’t imagine what the last several months have been like for you. Now, your life must feel as if it has been turned up-side-down. I am so greatful that your daughter is supportive and here to help you. I want you to know that I am thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers.
    Very Sincerely,
    Debbie
