The lady of the family did write me a nice letter telling me she loved the house and about how her family plans to use it and stuff. Seems like they really like it and want it.

This is an emotional game to convince sellers who are too attached to their home to sell to the lovely family who will love their home as much as they do. It is manipulative, and you need to ignore it. You should not care how your house is treated after you leave it.

Hopefully all will go smoothly. It does more often than not, and I see no glaring indication that this should be a problem transaction.
