    My heart is heavy again, too soon for me, life has not been kind to those I love. If there is one consolation, it is that Bob, my best friend, is there to great you Al. I know you two will be able to touch our lives in new ways, I know we women still long for your words, your kindnesses. I know I loved taking care of our relationships ‘together’. Sending Mom S, & your family some happy memories – we cherish our time together. Love and hugs to all the Steinbrenners and Spilkers and beyond.

    I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in drawing close to our heavenly Father Jehovah God, in this difficult time. He promises to be “near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves. ” (Psalm 34:18) My deepest condolences.
