Dear Richard Anderson,
I was shocked to hear about the death of your baby, I had to read the obituary three times to take it in. I cannot explain why such things happen but please take comfort in the fact that she was loved, even if it was for too short a time. She was a joy to see and she was truly beautiful. Our thoughts are with you and your husband during this difficult time.
