Dear Aunt Claudia,

I just recently heard about Uncle Pat being in the hospital and it just breaks my heart. He’s been having heart troubles again and the doctors don’t seem to know what’s wrong. I just want you to know that I am here for you and I will do anything that it takes to help you get through this.

I would like to wish for Pat to have a speedy recovery and if there’s anything that you need, just give me a call. You know I’ll be there to help, as Patrick has a lot of friends and loved ones supporting him.



Dear Roger,

I heard about the accident while driving last week and that’s just one of the dangers of being on the road. An animal stepped out in front of your truck and you couldn’t break fast enough but the good news is I heard you’re going to make a full and speedy recovery. You’ll be back out on the road in no time!

I want you to know that I will be praying for you and that if you need me to help in any way, you know I’ll be here.



Dear Richie,

You are one of the strongest people that I know physically and mentally. What you are currently going through I couldn’t imagine even attempting. I understand that you made it into Week 9 of BUD/s School to become a Navy Seal when a bone in your neck snapped.

You were doing so well and I can’t imagine the frustration and the feelings that you are feeling right now. We’re all back at home supporting you and hoping that they let you back in after a speedy recovery.


Uncle Phil
