Dearest Krissy; this is Gloria & I used to work at Di’s Hallmark with my friend, Deana Schumer. I have thought of you, as a dear friend, as well. I recall spending some of my most endearing & entertaining times spent in your company & at your home. You’re absolutely delightful, warm & loving. I moved away from the Grand Rapids area for a few years & have recently moved back.

I was surprised to hear of the loss of your sweet son. He was so young & handsome. I am sending you my condolences at this difficult time. Please know that you’re in my thoughts & prayers. I am sending my warmth & love to you & your family at this tender time. May our Lord, Jesus Christ comfort your beautiful heart, as you cope with your loss & grief. May you find peace in knowing that He has welcomed Collin into eternal life. I know that you’re a faithful Christian and May God embrace you with His LOVE & presence.
