Dear Mrs. Niedermier,
I am a friend of your daughter, Beth and was saddened to hear of her father’s passing. In reading his obituary, I see that he was indeed a man committed to God, his country and his family. I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that I will be praying for the repose of his soul and keeping you and all your family in my prayers.
May God, in His tenderness, impart courage and comfort into your hearts.
Sincerely, Gina Dias
Al and family. Although I didn’t get to work with Jim that much I do remember him as a fair man and honest worker and funny at times. Al, I’m sorry for your loss, I hope you can find peace in your heart during this most difficult time.
