Aunt Pat, Mark and Christine
Sherry and I were terribly saddened when we learned of the passing of Uncle Mel. There will be a brief period of sorrow but soon the Lord will fill the whole in your hearts and you will only be able to reflect on the good times that you all shared. Our love and prayers are with you and when we get back to Toledo we will contact you so we can spend some time together. Again we are sorry we cannot be with you in your time of sorrow but our love and prayers are with you.

Love always,
Carl & Sherry
