Sorry to hear about Chris.  Recently people have been asking about you both. No one seemed to know where you are or how you are.  Just wanted you to know we are thinking about you.

Dear Bob, Martha, and all of Chris's family,
I'm saddened to know that Chris has passed on, and you have my deepest sympathy.
I have special childhood memories of visiting, with my grandmother Hyde, Chris and Martha's grandparents, Humphrey and Inez Hyde Mikesell.  They were very special folks, and would take me 'across the road' to try (emphasis on 'try') to ride Chris and Martha's ponies.
Peace and Blessings,

We were very sorry to read about Chris.  Also, sorry that we lost touch for several years now.  We're thinking of you; you have our sympathy.
