We were all saddened by your loss. We pray that God will comfort you all and bless you as only He can.
We were neighbors last week at Azure and I enjoyed your kindness each morning as I walked back to our condo, usually with one of our granddaughters, after an early walk to the beach. You were kind to speak to us and I appreciate our brief encounters. Our family extends our sympathy to your family.
