    To the Ashe family, My heartfelt sympathy to all of you. I’m sorry that I’m
    unable to come to Ka. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I have some very fond memories of your mother and dad, played a lot of cards.
    Give my love to all. God needed another angel. God Bless, Great Aunt Judy.
