Dear Pene and Wendy and families, I apologize for not being able to attend Aunt Sylvia's funeral today. Jim is working and I have come down and been fighting with bronchitis. I would not have been good company and also did not want to spread any sickness. I do remember and think back of all the times we spent at your parent's home when we were young. May our Lord be with you this day and the days ahead to give peace and comfort for your loss. Love and Peace, Jim and Susann Madara
