Dear Carol and Family,
So sorry to hear of Bob’s death. We have lost contact over the years, but remember you both with fondness. I remember your beautiful letter to my sister, Jean when her 3 year old died. She really appreciated that.
We will keep you in our prayers and may God grant you his comfort. Jan and Wayne Stanfield
