Dear Boensch Family,My condolences for your loss. I lost my sister just last month, and the impact is still sinking in. I wish you God's Peace during this time, and always.

Betty and Lisa, I was so sorry to receive the news of Margaret's passing. I cannot imagine the depth of sorrow that I'm sure has filled your hearts. My thoughts have since wandered down memory lane that goes so very many years back with your family. I have amused my husband and girls with some funny ones and shared snippets of my recollections of times with all the Sewards. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you both and your entire family as you begin a healing process that you are all too familiar with. May God fill you with peace that surpasses all understanding.
