Dear Mr. Sanchez,
Thank you for all the kindness you showed me when I was a boy living next door to you. I remember with great fondness going over to visit you with my mother and taking care of your dog when you went on vacation. When I heard from my mother that you had had a heart attack and were in the hospital, I could hardly believe it. I hope it was not too serious. Take good care of yourself. I will visit you the next time I am in town.
