Dear Krista and family,
I’m so very sorry for your loss.
I will continue to have you in my prayers that you’ll be able to have the strength and comfort you need as you walk through this difficult time. My heart is truly with you.
I’m so glad I had the pleasure of meeting Pat and talking to her a little when I would come into the store. She was always so nice.
