Sorry, I was not able to attend visitation. We were out of town when I heard. Sometimes it's really hard to accept that our loved ones are gone. It helps to talk about their favorite experiences and to keep the faith that you will meet again. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Sincerely, Bonnie VerHagen
