    Dear Pat, Mike, Brian and Ann:

    Lawryn and I will miss seeing your father at O’Houlihan’s. We always enjoyed chatting with both your mom and dad when we were in the restaurant.

    We’ll be keeping you in our prayers.

    Your father must have missed your mother dearly. Now they are together again.
