Geri, Karen, Alan, Susan, and Christie,
I was saddened to hear about the loss of your mother. Even though the family is not formally receiving friends the traditional way due to the pandemic, I just wanted to let you know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. News like this is never easy. Especially with the passing of Aunt Frances because with her passing it made me realize that she was the last survivor of that generation for our family. I miss them all! Since receiving the news, I have been reflecting on memories from the past when we used to gather as one big family with Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Mom & Pop. There are times when I wish we could turn back the clock and relive those moments. I miss seeing my extended family but know that you are all loved.
