Dear Coral and Family,
My deepest sympathy. May you know the strength of God's Blessings and Love throughout your days of grief. I so admired my cousin Hugh as a wonderful gentleman, with a kind and generous heart, a great Irish sense of humor, a knowledge and appreciation of history, and a proud American. He will be remembered and missed.
God Bless You All,
Love,
Jane Lee
