So sorry to hear of Aunt Eunice’s passing. I know she has been struggling for awhile, and now all of that is behind her, and she can be with all those who have gone before. Know that we are thinking of you at this difficult time, but are not able to make the trip home to be with you in person. Mom is 92 now, and although she is doing well those long trips are just too much, especially in the cold weather.

Our deepest sympathy,

Heidi & Bob Perdelwitz
