Dear Family, I will always remember the first time meeting Aimee's father at the Renaissance. We were dining in the restaurant and he came over to introduce himself to me and my Mother, who resides there. He was so kind and polite; quite the gentleman. I'm sorry for your loss. God's grace, love and presence be with your family always.
