Dear Mrs. Holster and Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. Mr. Holster was a good man who loved his family and will surely be missed by all who knew him. I have many fond memories of playing at your home next door, and I will never forget how kind your family was to me while growing up on Copperfield Drive. Your family actually provided much-needed stability in my life, and I thank you. You may not know, but it was Mr. Holster who was there to comfort me outside while I was going through the heartache of divorce inside my home, and I have never forgotten is kindness and always wished he was my father too. My love to you, Kim, Richie, and family.
