  • To my dear cousins Arthur, Wilma, Herta, Frieda, Lina, Richard, Melita and Leo and your families. I am so heartbroken for you to have to say goodbye to your dad, especially in this really cruel Covid time, when you can’t gather with each other and share your grief in community. Please know that your large and extended family Is with you in spirit and send you our love and prayers. I have only happy and fond memories of your father. He reminds me so very much of my own dad and our Opa. May memories of your time with him bring you comfort. Hugs from me, Sally Marsolais. - Posted by: Sally Marsolais (Niece) on: Feb 17, 2021
