    Mary and Manuel, the loss of a child is incomprehensible to most of us and we find ourselves lost for words. Please know if there is anything we can do as you walk this sad journey, you’ve only to ask. Our hearts are with you. John and Shauna

    Mary and Manual. Oh, her beautiful smile, that lovely hair, and more than anything, her wonderful disposition. You do not expect that one of your babies will precede you. I am grieving for you both, and for beautiful Christine’ leaving so before her time.
