Geta and siblings,

I'm sure that in her 91 years, your mother gave you plenty of memories to recall that will help to ease the loss of her here on Earth. May those memories be a comfort to you.

Our sympathy to our schoolmate Geta and her family.
May the Lord grant you peace in this difficult time.
