- Dear David and Chris,
We were shocked to hear that your mother had passed away. I knew that she was in the hospital, but someone told me that she had come home. At least now her suffering is at an end and she will be reunited in Heaven with your dad and Austin. She was a very special and loving person. Be sure to allow the loving arms of God to surround you and comfort you as you deal with your loss. God Bless you.
Todd and Tina (Pollock) Reichert
