Dear Ginny, Janet, Jim, and Family,
I was deeply saddened to hear of your dad's passing. I have such fond memories of your parents. They were such great friends to my parents. They shared so many wonderful years of friendship and enjoyed vacationing together.
The video was a touching tribute to both your parents. They will always be remembered and loved.
With Heartfelt Sympathy,
Charlene Paradise
