    Dear Bill and all of Risa’s family,

    I am sad to learn of Risa’s passing. She was such a warm and kind person and will be missed by her colleagues in the real estate industry. Risa and I had an eventful transaction a few months ago and both of us were able to laugh through the craziness. I will remember Risa for her professionalism, warm heart and sense of humor. My heartfelt condolences to you on this loss.

    Dear Bill and your family, by chance I just now learned of Risa’s death and I wanted to convey my condolences to all of you. We (my late husband Ken and I) helped celebrate your wedding day, and I have thought of you both fondly ever since. Nancy

    Hello Bill-
    We were just talking about you and Risa, and wondering about you, when Steve googled and saw that Risa is gone. We are so very saddened at this news; she was one of the sweetest and most “can-do” people we knew. You must have been devastate to lose her. We hope it gives you some comfort to know that we frequently thought of both of you, even if we were remiss in not getting in touch.
    Our hearts go out to you and her children, who she spoke of often.
    Audrey and Steve
