To my friend I’m going to miss you so much RIP
Sorry for your loss. We can’t come personally Sandra and family as joanne is in Florida. Our condolences.
Dear Uncle Karl,
I’m saddened to hear of your passing. I know I didn’t get to see you very much after Grandpa passed away but I did think of you often. I know our families did not know each other well but maybe there will be some hope for change in the future. My thoughts, prayers, and sympathies to all of your children, step-children, and their families. Also, to Uncle Douglas, Aunt Esther and their families as well.
