  6. Kenny,

    It has taken me a while to muster the courage to write. I am sincerely sorry for that.

    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.

    I can only imagine how much you miss Ms. Monica. She was one of the finest women I have met. Always giving, calm, collected and wise. And Lord knows we’ve had some things happen at the track to test that.

    My thoughts are with you brother. I can only imagine how you are feeling.
