Dear Debbie & Family:

I know I haven't been a part of Grossnickle for very long, but everyone there feels like family to me. I would like to offer you my heartfelt condolences on the passing of Stanley. I didn't know him very well, but we did sit next to each other at church a few times and I really enjoyed singing Christmas carols in his home this past year. Please know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
