Aloha Dave and family,
You have our deepest condolences and heartfelt prayers upon Pat’s passing last week. We were sorry to hear the news. God bless you and those who look after the very ill in hospice care. We have had to live through that difficult period of time ourselves with Ginny’s mom a few years ago and were always thankful to those folks who are so dedicated in that work.
We are thinking fondly on that time when both Dave and Pat visited us here in Kailua. Although when visiting KC in 2016, we missed a chance to visit you in the summer of 2016 because of extended family complications at the last minute, do not give up hope on us. Maybe the stars will align sometime in the near future so that we can visit.
Again, our thoughts are with you at this difficult time,
Ed and Ginny Klein
