Dear Annabelle and family. My sincerely condolences on the passing of your dear mother and grandmother. While I didn’t really know your mother I knew a bit about her from your & my many trips to Hanover and back. I know that she was a hard worker that loved her husband and family dearly. Your mom suffered great loss over the years but somehow managed to persevere. I know she loved to dance. Well rest assured she is now dancing in the heavens as she so justly deserves!
