Dear Kristina,Louise,William,
Iam so sorry to learn of Grace's passing.Your parents were two of the finest people that I had the pleasure to know!They were so kind and generous and always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.I'll aways remember the wonderful times your parents,my mom and myself had traveling together!
In fact,that is how we met your parents.It was on a bus trip to Yellowstone and your dad stood up on the bus and said,"on our passenger list are people from Orwigsburg and I would like to meet them."And that was the beginning of a long and beautiful friendship!A friendship treasured till the end!
My deepest sympathy to you and your families,
Joanne (Rohrer) Emerich
