Dearest Florence,
I am so sorry to learn today (1-01-2012) of the death of your husband Oscar. My Christmas greeting to you was returned to me as undeliverable this year so I don't know how to contact you. My sympathy and love to you. poetmom@charter.net 541-776-2345

Dear Florence,
Our sympathy to you and your family in the loss of Oscar. My parents always remembered how much he loved fishing and were so happy when he took them to a favorite spot of his. May God Bless.

On behalf of Evelyn Reinfeld and the entire Reinfeld family, I send our love and prayers to Florence and the Scheetz family. Though much distance separates us, we are all close in heart. May God Bless.
