Dear Mr. Rick,
Thank you all for kindness and help given to me in my hour of grief. I could hardly have made it through if you all were not around to help me. I was in a kind of daze, quite unable to accept that someone that I love so much is gone. However, I have got over that now and I thank you once again for everything.
Let me sort out a few more things and I shall be back at work as soon as I can.
