My dearest Sue,
It is almost impossible to write to you as words fail and the depth of my sympathies is
best expressed in utter silence. Still I want to tell you that in my drifting you are constantly
in my thoughts, you and your grief stricken house hold, and at night when I retire I am with you
in my thoughts for many hours. It is so heard to realize the changes and the losses when you are
far from home and the absence of familiar faces. Claude was always so bright and cheerful, so sweet
and loveable. I shall never cease to miss her and to mourn with you in your double grief. I pray
for strength and health for you who are so necessary to your family, and for little Gordon who is
so young to be burdened with such sorrow.
Loving and grieving with you, I am always your devoted friend. Harriet Camp*
