Dear David & Family, Our sympathy to you on the loss of your dear, sweet Tina. We had the pleasure of meeting her when she worked at the Alma Latina and then she and David rented from Tom's folks on Jackson St. She was a wonderful lady, a hard worker, kept things clean and neat and she was fun to talk to. (Tom's folks are both 100 and his sisters have moved them to an assisted living facility in Milwaukee.) We'll be keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. May God somehow bless you and give you His peace and strength during this difficult time. Sincerely, Jerry & Mary, Tom & Pat Graham
