    Dear Mac and Grace…

    My deepest and most sincere condolences on the loss of Danny. Though I did not know him personally, I think a lot of both of you and I can only imagine what a grievous it is to lose a son, at any age. There are no words I would offer to beguile you of your grief, and only can say that I share in it with you, knowing what fine folks you are.

    May GOD rest his soul and keep you close in this, your time of sorrow.
