Dear Chelsey and family,

Please accept my condolences in Grace's death. She was a lovely person with a great sense of humor. I remember her on various occasions but the most fun time was at my son Rindert's wedding when she came to Minneapolis with Hilda and Frank. She had me laughing comparing the wild rice served at the dinner we attended to the bird seed at the church for showering the bride and groom.

I also just heard of Pam's passing. It has been a difficult time for you.
