Dear Uncle Dick, Linda, Cheryl, Nancy, and Randy,
I am unable to be there physically, but know that I’m there in spirit. I was so sorry to hear about Aunt Alice’s passing. I’m always going to remember her wonderful laugh and beautiful smile. Her love for her family was so evident,and she was always quick to tell of your news and show new photos! She was so proud of you all! I’ll always hold her close in my heart, and I’ll treasure all the memories I have of her. I’m sorry I can’t be there now with you- Jamie had all of his wisdom teeth pulled this morning and he’s going to need TLC for a few days.
I love you,
Linda, Joe and family
You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother, mother in law and grandmother. You will keep with you the wonderful memories of a life lived to it’s fullest.
