To the Ihlefeld Family-
I am so sorry to not be able to attend Uncle Albert's funeral and celebrate his memory with family and friends.

I remember Uncle Albert as gregarious and funny. I recall Mom telling a story about when she was a little girl, "Uncle Albert fed her too many peanuts" and she got sick. I also remember the pound cakes Daisy always sent with him when he visited Iowa.

My sincere sympathy on the loss of your brother. We know he is now in Heaven and free of pain and suffering.

Again, my regrets for missing the funeral and the opportunity to see the family.

Margaret E. Hahn
