Karen and family --

I was so sorry to hear about your mother. A piece of your heart is taken when your mother passes away. My thoughts are with you, Steve, and the children.

I hope one day to see you.

Two of our friends at 216 are no longer with us.

Take care and God bless,


Leave your Condolence
