Tiffani and Chris,
We were so sorry to hear the news of your Mother’s passing. Coming so close to that of your Dad makes this really tough. We lost two really quality people who we so enjoyed having as next door neighbors for 25 years. While the loss now is so hard, once time passes and we have a chance to reflect on the loss of two great people, only then will the memories of moments of kindness and laughter we had with them sink in and and make the loss we feel pale in comparison. Praying for God’s comfort for you both.
Ross & Sheila Hodel
