  1. To my cousins, Teresa, Robert, Dennis, Kelley & Jacque,

    You have my deepest sympathies and I hope you will find peace and comfort. The coming days will be difficult and you know this, but with each other and the rest of the family, you will find your way to the other side of grief.

    I have quite a few memories of both your dad and your mom that I will hold onto. One memory which stands out above the rest is my wedding day; your parents were living in Saudi Arabia and called to wish me and Dan well and to let us know that they loved us and would see us soon.

    I love you all and have you very close in thought and prayer.
