"You have my deepest sympathies on the death of your loved, Wesley.....Through the years, he and Norma invited us over to play cards or just to chat! I attended their church, Christ Lutheran, and became good and faithful friends...... They, indeed, will both be missed very much! May God give you strength and endurance during this difficult time............"
