Dear Della, Delena, Patty and Janelle
I can't tell you how very sorry I was to hear of your loss. I have so many good memories of being neighbors with you and the 4 of us playing cards while you and my kids played. He was a good man and I am sure he will be missed by many.
My deepest sympathies and condolences to you all.
Love Sandy and Melissa
