Dear Darrell, Ava and Josh,
I am so very sorry about Kimberly. She was one of the nicest parents I have had the pleasure to meet. She was soft spoken, kind and she adored her children. She always remembered me and we would exchange pleasantries whenever we would pass by. I’d no idea about this second bout of illness. I will think of her often. I know how much she will be missed by all who were fortunate to have known her. You are in my thoughts and my prayers.
