There are no words to express our sorrow and the pain we share with you. We were close friends for many many years and as we grew up and went on with our adult lives we didn 't see each other much anymore but always had fond memories of our good times together. We will be here to support, comfort and love you in the days and months to come. Please don't hesitate to call us day or night. Much love to you.
