    Dear Peter, Kristine & Family:
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. Your mom was a very sweet lady and your mom & dad were a very special couple. I (Sharon) truly enjoyed getting to know Gerta when she was at Stoneybrook of American House. I had lots of good conversations with her and your dad. I could tell how much they loved each other and your family. Now they are together again.❤️
    Take Care & God Bless!
    Love & Hugs
    Jeff & Sharon Kieft
