    I will fondly remember your stories about her spunk, sports accomplishments, helping with the house redecoration, and of course, the rides in Dan’s sports car! God Bless you both during your time of grief and reflection.

    Dear Carleen and Dan,

    My sincere sympathy with the loss of your mother and mother in law. I did not know your mother of course, but Joyce told me about her birthday party and she had met her at your place and at other times.
    My thoughts are with you,

    Wilma Kraak
