    My sincere condolences at the passing of Uncle Henry. I was sure saddened at the news – sorry I wasn’t at his funeral – I was out of town and not able to make it back in time.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Take care.

    Dear Agnes, Carole, and Gary:

    I was so sad the hear of the passing of Henry. The Guenther family often come to mind, especially at this time of year when I recall the parties at Nick and Angie’s. It doesn’t seem to matter how old you are, you always miss your dad. Lane and I had hoped to come to the funeral but he got stranded in Revelstoke because of a storm. Please take care of each other and know that you are in my thoughts.
