    Dear Larry
    Jack and I are so sorry for your loss. Oresia was a bright light in life at Silver Springs. We always enjoyed her quiet humour and how she was keen to join any fun things with the girls. You both fought very hard against MSA and Oresia coped with dignity.
    Thinking of you with love and sympathy.
    Wilma and Jack
