Dear Paula and family,
I'm at a loss finding the right words to tell you how shocked and sorry I was to hear about John!! I know you have a lot of family and friends to lean on that will help you during this terribly sad time. Just know that you are all in my thoughts each day ~ and that I hope that the memories of your life together can bring you some peace. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. Now you'll have someone watching over you and taking care of you from above. I'm so so sad.

Dear Paula,
I saw Diana Nichols last night at a meeting and she told me of the sudden death of your husband. I am so sorry Paula, what a horrible shock. Please accept my sincere condolences.
I think of you often and the many good times we all shared in Cell Bio then how nice it is that you found a place in Colin's lab. I hope that before too long you will be able to enjoy life and smile again and remember the good times you and John had together.
Fondly, Libby
