Brenda,

We were so sorry to hear of your father’s passing. The strength and support you and your family have shown over the years, in keeping him part of your family, has been remarkable and inspirational. He was blessed to have you as a daughter and we are blessed to have you as a friend.

Peace,

Joel and Therese
