To the Orris family,

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Charlie, who was my first boyfriend. After many years of not having any contact with Charlie, I went to see him at his restaurant ( approx. 2 months ago). I had wanted to see him for many years but something always stopped me from taking that step. When i was home recently for a

family illness, I decided to go to see him. I felt very relieved, after all these years, to finally sit down and talk to him about our lives and what went wrong. I felt like it was a good "closure".

If I would not have gone to see him, I would be

deeply angry at myself for never doing so.

I want to give the entire family by deepest condolences. He will be deeply missed.

I am sorry that i will not be able to attend the funeral, since I live in New York City, but i will contribute to his charity.

I am truely sorry,

Jamie Nesbitt-Weber
