To My Beloved Sister Karen:

Lin and I want you to know you are in our prayers and thoughts at this difficult time in your life. God allowed you and Vincent to be married and share a life together for 44 years. I came to know Vincent as a great brother-in-law, but you came to know him as a friend, husband and great father. Both of you reached out and brought into your lives two children: Kimberly and Sean which you shared as a beautiful family. You and Vincent created many memories over the years of laughter, crying, smiling, fussing, enjoyment; conversations, happiness; vacations, relocations e.g. Buffalo, NY; Scott Deport; Reston, Virginia and later to Lithia, Florida. We are sure you had some victories and defeats along life’s journey together. But, most importantly you obtained a sustaining victory through accepting Christ, because both of you opened your hearts and life to God and allowed him to dwell within yourselves. So, at this time of Vincent’s home going to be with the Lord, please know that God will continue to be with and comfort you. Remember we love you and so does God.

With love your brother,
Howard & Lin in
Goodyear, Arizona
