Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.

I have many fond memories of working as Charlie's assistant during our stay at Seaboard World Airlines. Of all my jobs, this was by far the best. Charlie was the best boss I ever had, so much so that we became great friends. Lea, you have my deepest sympathy; his loss touches my heart.
