26th. May, 1944.
Mr. Joseph Senton :-
My sincere sympathy goes out to you in these anxious days as you await news of your son, w/o Claude Senton, who is reported missing on air operations. May the Heavenly Father strengthen and uphold you.
Claude was popular with the boys, and all the members of the Squadron sympathize with you and join with you in hoping that he and the other members of the craft may be safe and well.
May God bless and keep you in these days and grant you an assurance of His unfailing nearness to you and to your loved one. May His peace fill your heart.
Should there be any way in which I can be of service to you, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
