Fred, Ron, Kevin, the girls and families,
Sincere condolences on behalf of the Upham families. Unfortunately our schedules didn’t allow us to be at the funeral and Dad and Mom didn’t feel up to the trip.
Just know that our thoughts and prayers have been with you as you deal with the loss of your Mom-Grandma.
