Dearest Nancy and Bazemore Family,

I am so sorry to hear about Bobby. I remember Queen Elizabeth speaking at Princess Di’s funeral and she said “Grief is the price we pay for love.” Bobby was loved and he loved. He deserves your grief. My prayers from the heart and my warmest of thoughts are with you all.

Sincerely, Helen
