Claire, Patrick and Kate,

Words don't really help at times like this, but I just want to let you know how truly sorry I am for your husband/fathers' death.

The only thing I found that helps is time and the memories you will always have in your heart to remember him by.

If there is anything I can do, please don't hesitate to call me.

We were so saddened to hear of Ron’s passing. We extend our sincere condolences to you Patrick, Katherine, and the entire Szostak family.
Ron was a wonderful man. I remember when you both met while we all worked at Catalytic together. Ron was smart, polite and quietly handsome.
You were young, pretty and cautious and smitten with Ron. Your wedding
like your romance was perfect. And now the things Ron achieved in life are left behind for you with Patrick and Kate and a trove of memories. We celebrate Ron’s wonderful life and wonderful wife.
With love,
Larry and Mary Dooley

Dear Claire, Patrick and Katherine, My heart aches for you all during this time and am deeply sorry for your tremendous loss. Your father always brought such warmth and light when he came to the office. Claire, I’ll always remember our great conversations and how your face lit up with love whenever you spoke of Ron. Your special, one-of-a-kind connection was easy to see. He will truly be missed. I pray the cherished memories of your fathers life will provide you with the comfort you need during this challenging time. Turn to each other, lean on each other and love each other. Claire, I’m here for you. My deepest sympathies, Cortney
