    Dear Ellen,
    No words to tell you how sorry I am that Bobby is gone. I remember him being so kind to me as a little girl. That was 70+ years ago. I was so happy when you two married. The perfect couple. Georgie and I would visit you after you had your own children. I hope you will picture Bobby in that better place. You had a long and happy life together. I think of you always laughing together. He was a funny character.
    All my love to you and your very large family.
    P.S. notice I didn’t use your nickname.
