“Dear Mrs. R-
My name is Patricia (last name). My husband is Richard (Keith) (last name) and the father of N and L (last name).
It has recently been brought to my attention (July 17th) that I have caused you and your family a great deal of stress and turmoil with my phone call to you on or around June 23, 1998.
I called your home at the request of my husband to verify some information. He wanted to confirm that his name and phone number were in fact, given to you in January 1996, as another person to contact in the event there was an Emergency with his kids, while in your care. This was all the information he was trying to ascertain.
Please accept my sincerest apology, as hurting your family in any way, shape or form, was not my intention and I had NO IDEA that my call to you would have such an adverse affect and be so traumatic for you. I am deeply sorry for this.
Thank you for your time and God Bless You.
Patricia (last name)
P.S. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or write. 562-***-****”
