Dear [recipient's name]:

Every year as Memorial Day approaches, I think of your husband and how he sacrificed his life while serving in the U.S. Navy. And this year is certainly no different. I know your beloved husband is on your mind and in your heart always, but especially throughout this holiday, and I just wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you and am here for you. Despite your loss, know that you have so much for which to be proud-how dedicated, committed, and hard working your husband was. I know I am not alone in speaking of him so highly.

I would be so honored and touched if you would attend the local Memorial Day remembrance ceremony with me. It starts at 10 a.m. on Memorial Day, so you can think about it and let me know whether you can attend. Again, I extend my most sincere friendship and support to you. As you know, you can feel free to give me a call anytime you need a listening ear.
