Betty and Family:
You have my sincere condolences at this difficult time.
My acquaintance with Ennis comes from conversations at St. George’s Cemetery Service; his presence, henceforth, will be missed. Ennis had the characteristics of a caring man, which made him a nice person to know.
My husband, Ed, joins with me in this message of sympathy.
