Karen, David, Lindsey Kiraly, Elyssa, and Christey,
I am so sorry you lost such a remarkable woman. She has been the best neighbor we could ask for, but to call her a friend is not nearly enough. She was more like family, and I am glad that my last words to her were "I love you." She means the world to us, and my heart hurts for you knowing how much more she means to all of you. If you need any help with anything, please do not hesitate to call. Thank you for sharing her with us. We love her so.
Kim, Scott, Alex, and Christian Douglas
