Dear Mr. Cater,
It was a shock to find out that your friend, Elizabeth, died due to cancer recently. I know how much she meant to you and I sympathize with you deeply.
I remember the last time I accompanied you to visit her during one of her chemotherapy sessions in the hospital. She was so vibrant and full of life despite her condition and her frailness. I was surprised to find how positive she was about life even though she was diagnosed to have a serious terminal illness. From knowing her, I have learned to become more enthusiastic and make the most out of life. Her death is a great loss but we owe it to our loved ones to live on. I hope the presence of other friends like me will help you recover from such a sad loss.
Condolence, my friend. I am always here if you need a shoulder to cry on.
