Mein herzliches Beileid zu eurem Verlust.
Der größten Teil der Familie kenne ich leider nicht, ich konnte nur Erich und Lorraine kennenlernen und das ist schon sehr lange her.

I’m deeply saddened to hear of my good friends passing. I’ll remember your delicious egg salad sandwiches you always made me. Our talks of gardening, how amazing a grandma you were to Ryan. How you used to go raspberry picking in the deer run house with him and introduced us to mangos. One of the kindest people I have ever met. Rest In Peace my friend xx
