Dear Mrs. Johnson, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Keith was a highly respected manager at Walmart. We all loved him. Unfortunately I did not find out the time and date of the service in time to attend. Please know that I dearly loved both you and him. Please accept my belated condolences.
Sincerely,
Ronald E. Nichols.
