    Dear Malis, Ray, Kim and Karoline. Though I didn’t get to know your dad/grandpa too well I remember how your parents stayed with mine after they had their accident. I’m sure they had some lovely visits. It is a fond memory for me, as it was the beginning of our friendship. You are cherished friends and I wish you God’s comforting presence during this sad time. May your memories help to fill the ache in your hearts.
    With much love, Connie and Helm
