Bridget, Colleen, Kathryn, Gregory and Deborah,
I want you to know that I am thinking about you and praying for you. I will always remember Ambrose as sweet and fun-loving. So many years have passed since we grew up as neighbors on Concord Road, but each of you will always be special to me. Now Ambrose is free and with all our parents and my sweet sister in the presence of the Lord.
Love and blessings,
Linda Holden Bell
