    Elsie, Bill and Will,

    My thoughts are with you and your family. My deepest condolences for your loss. I wish I had words that could express the sadness that I feel for your loss. But I can’t find any words that will do that justice. I am keeping you in my thoughts. Please be safe.

  3. Elsie, Bill, Will, Fred and Alice-

    With great sorrow, I want to say how very sorry I am to hear of Catherine’s passing. I will pray for all of you and keep you close in my thoughts. Catherine was an early friend of my sister Alison (Lambert) and I remember her at that age fondly. I want to add that I always loved her name–there were not many girls at that time named “Catherine”. I chose the name Catherine for my first daughter…

    Dear Dr. and Mrs. Carter, Will, Alice and Fred,
    I’m so shocked and saddened to hear the news of Catherine’s passing. We had such fun times at Snowshoe with the family. I remember many many fun birthday parties, brownie/girl scout meetings, and mostly just hanging out on a lazy summer day when we were little. I pray that her children are handling their mother’s loss as well as can be expected. I will continue to keep you all close to my heart and send continued prayers your way.
    With my Deepest Sympathy,
    Alison Lambert Long
