Dear Janet, in this difficult time of loss you are in our thoughts and in our prayers. As hard as it is to lose both parents in such a short time, it probably was a blessing for your father not to stay behind much longer without his beloved wife. We pray that they both may rest in peace with our Lord Jesus Christ. With deepest sympathy, Birgit, Bernie, and Konrad Kraemer
