Dear Kurt and young ladies

it is with my deepest sympathies I hold you in my heart and thoughts. You both enjoyed a wonderful love, life and loving daughters. From our discussion, I know Christina really put up a ferocious fight against this horrible disease….and you were her loving support. Hugs, Darlene


My hesrt goes out to Kurt and his Daughters. I'm sending my deepest sympathy and prayers.


To Christine’s family, my deepest sympathies. Christine was my friend at Hamilton West, a fellow waitress at the German-American Club back then, and would chat with me when we ran into each other around town and on Facebook in recent years. I am in awe of her composure and grace through her battle with cancer. She was a genuinely good person and held in high esteem in our community. May she rest in peace.

Margaret (Karrais) Simpson
