  3. Dear Cousin George,
    Deepest sympathy in the loss of your beloved Kris. I so enjoyed talking to your Kris while I was in Lake Bluff for Uncle Mike’s funeral. I was so impressed at how she faced her health battle with great courage. She was an impressive lady! You two were beautiful together. I know there is a huge void right now. I pray that God will carry you through the hard days ahead as you mourn her passing. Treasure the memories, and keep busy with your children and grand children. We pray that God will strengthen you each day. May God bless you and your family as you celebrate Kris this week!
