Hi Rodney,

I was so sorry to hear about the death of your wife. From the obituary it sounds like she has a large family who will mourn her. She must have been a great lady.

Steve so sorry to hear of your wife’s death. Cancer is a dreadful disease. A loved ones death leaves a hole in your heart . It can be soothed with memories but never closed. Take solace in the fact that she is on the hands of God now.

All my love for you and your family and stay safe. Catherine Topp
