Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Connie,
Our prayers are with you and your family on your loss. Just the other day Bunny, Mom and I talked of the good times we had in Mexico. Mom remembered Kevin well and the fun time we had driving around Cozemel in the red jeep with Kevin at the wheel.

May you find peace in knowing that you are in our thoughts and prayers. When Tanya is in town next time we will have to get together. Our sympathy to your entire family. I have now met your sister Lori, which just happened to be by fluke of work. I hope you can find solace in family and friends during the coming weeks.

We are saddened by your loss. God be with you.
Diana & Don
