Dear Harry,

So sorry to hear of your wife’s passing. Sorry to post on line, but don’t have an address for you. I have stopped at Ivy Tech in the past few years to see you, John Miller, Catherine, and Rachel, but only ever find Rachel. You are in my prayers as you go through this difficult time. May God be with you each day.

Chris

Ron, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll never forget the times you, Becky and I had working at Michiana Community Hospital. She was the best. I pray for you and your family to find peace in the coming days.
