Dear Terry and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Uncle Ame's visits to Cedar Rapids dearly. He always cheered Mom and the entire family with his stories, and shared their memories of golf and their time as kids. During my entire childhood, he always looked in on his little sister! My thought and prayers are with you and the family at this sad time.
