    Dear Rick,
    I am so saddened and shocked by the news of Anita's passing as are all those at work who knew her. Anita was such a lovely person and was clearly blessed having you as not only her partner in life but also as she told me, having you as her best friend. Life will prove difficult for you without Anita, but remember that she will always be with you, so lean on the memories of her when times are tough. My sincere condolences go out to you and Anita's family.
