Dear Kari, Peder and Lauren,
We are deeply sorry for your loss. We remember the fun times we had in Ringwood with your Mom and Lauren and of course your Dad and Grandmother. We had some good times and lots of laughs that we will always remember. I'll always remember her kindness to Mark when trick n treating and allowing him to take handfuls of pennies when we came to your house, and of course little Angel who loved to sit with Hank and share his potato chips.
Be at peace and get comfort from the memories you made and shared together.
Janet and Hank
