I am genuinely sorry that B. has passed. She was funny and charming and odd and leggy, and I liked her very much. But honestly, you two have almost never been supportive during my difficult times, and I don't want to attend your open house. Of course, I probably will, but I certainly hope the weather is cool and I can bring Mia, so we can have a nice walk.

I guess I would have preferred that you not let me know, frankly. I doubt very much that my attendance matters much. You probably just didn't have anyone else on your team to tell.
