I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your aunt. I know you have been such a great nephew to her, you were always there for her and attended to all her needs from up here in Northern Kentucky, you were always there for her the entire time. She was so fortunate to have you watching over her and caring for her needs in her senior years.
If there is anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to ask.
God bless you and your family,
Mark Kreimborg
