Dear Susan and Jeff and their Families,
Our sincere condolences to you and your families. We have only happy memories of your parents. When we first moved to Valparaiso in 1969 as newlyweds, they befriended us, and we had many happy times playing cards and hunting at the farm.
Susan, you were a newborn at the time, and that is how I mark your age!
They were a genuinely hospitable couple who made everyone feel welcome. We will miss knowing they are not in the world with us any longer but comforted to know that we will see them and have a few good laughs with them again!
