Relation: Nearby neighbours starting in 1965

We did not really know Linda, however our daughter Glenda was friends with Linda’s younger sisters. Through the friendship we became aware of the family and the fine values they exhibited in their relationships with others. Our sympathy goes out to each one of you.
