  15. Tracey,
    I’m so sorry for your loss and you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I just had the pleasure of sitting next to your Dad at your Steeped Tea event earlier this year; and I remember him smiling and cracking jokes the whole time. He was definitely a very special person : ) . I’m sorry I wasn’t able to be at the service and memorial; but I’m sure there was a lot of love and memories of him shared by all .
    Deepest Sympathy,

  16. We just found out. We are so sorry and send prayers to your family. Joseph wanted you to know that the only thing he remembers about Angelina is Norm.
