Dearest Janice, Brian, and to all your families,
My heart aches for you and your family during this time. Your father was such an amazing person, his loss is felt deeply and we will truly miss him. Your father was an extremely caring and kind man. As a child, I remember the first time I met him, he was so calm, which made me feel so comfortable. He could always lighten the mood with a good joke. I hope you let the memories of your father provide you with the comfort you need during this very challenging time. Our deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. May God give you the comfort and peace that you seek and may the soul of your father (my Uncle Bob) rest in Peace.
Prayers and much love,
Brenda and Stuart, Matthew & Kristin Kehr
