Dear Altena family,
I am so sorry for this tragic loss. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. My daughter is the same age as Niki and I can't imagine her being a widow. My heart aches with that thought. I pray that God will grant you peace that is beyond understanding.
Susie and family;
So sorry to read about the recent death of your Mother at such a young age. May she rest in peace.
Pat & Barb Birmingham
