Dear Arlene & David, Theo & Jackie, Jeff & Cindy, and Marg & Ken and all your children & grandchildren
We are truly sorry for your loss and understand it most sincerely, especially because we understand the loss of your second parent. It seems like it closes, once and for all, a chapter of your life. The generation you built and groomed your life upon, is gone. But you have a rich heritage of love and lessons learned from your parents and they have formed the foundation of you are and what you believe to this day. We pray that you will be comforted in your loss and encouraged for a heaven that overcomes all the pain and failings of life on earth. Sorry we cannot visit with you personally in this time of grief, but please know that we are thinking of you. Love, Marg & Harry
