Dixon:
Please accept my sympathy in the loss of your father. I saw of his passing in the paper tody. I remember your mom and dad both from high school when we used to all come to your house. Those were always some good times to me. Please if I can do anything let me know.

Dixon,
I was sorry to hear about your father. It hasn't been that long since I spoke with you about losing my mother and appreciated your call. Please know that I'm thinking about you.
