    Mrs. Jones,
    My condolences to you and your family. You would not know me by name, but I always sat 2 or 3 rows behind your husband Sundays at church, and you would recognize me by face. He was one of the nicest people I had the pleasure of meeting. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
    God Bless,
