Dearest Donna, Heather, Kelly, and Amelia, With my deepest heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your husband/father/grandfather. I hope the precious memories you carry in your heart will help you through this challenging time. I remember all the fun times Andy and Donna invited me over for dinner. Andy’s mother, Mary, insisted I learn to play card games and Dominos while sitting around the kitchen’s old oak table. What fun! May our friendship always be a source of comfort and strength. “ Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4) Love to all, -Amy Braunlich
