Dear Kathy and family. I understand how difficult this time is for you all as you are such a close family. I like to think that George and Jerry are fishing together in heaven, the best fishing hole of all. I send you my deepest sympathy and condolences.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I truly enjoyed meeting and caring for Mr. Christoph as one of his oncology nurses.
