To the family,

Wow. My own feelings of loss are so fresh. I really am saddened for the family. I know the pain and know that words hardly ever ease the sorrows connected with the death of a loved one. My brother, sister, and I just shake our heads that yet one more group of people get to deal with such sad hearts. May you be blessed by one another during your saddest moments.

Love Natalie Mann (Victor and Carol's youngest)

Kathy, I attended Greta's funeral but was unable to get to you to offer my condolences. You were always surrounded by those that love you so much...that is a wonderful thing. May they stick by you until the hole in your heart can mend. I had to run to work at temple (can't be late for that) so please accept my heartfelt blessing for a lot of warm and wonderful memories of your sister, friend and sometimes child.

Especially for JZ & Tony
I knew your mom as Victor Ray's cousin. I loved her so much and enjoyed her company. Whenever the family gathered I would seek her out. She always had a kind word and a cheery disposition. I looked forward to our visits. I loved her and will miss her infectious laughter and her beautiful smile and the sweetness she showed to all.

I knew Greta at the U of U Pulmonary Rehab as a fellow patient. She was a woman of determination and courage with a positive outlook. I looked forward to seeing her at rehab -- she was a great example of endurance and optimism. We will miss you Greta!
