    It is with great honor that I hold you in high esteem.  Being my Godmother and a great Aunt I have also had a love for her, for the many times during my life that I have enjoyed the many celebrations with her and my cousins at their home.  Hence, I extend my condolence to the family members for your loss.  I am sorry I cannot make the funeral, due to health issues, but I will be their in spirit.  Love Bob Huebner
