    Dear Frank, Children, Grandkids, and Family: We extend to you our sincere condolences with the passing of your dear loved one. Living so far away now we did not even know that she was sick. Of course I met Catherine at Bargains and remember her fondly as a very sweet hardworking lady. I’m sure you will miss her terribly. May the Lord’s comforting presence be near to all of you as you mourn. With our thoughts and prayers, Marianne and Archie Nugteren
