Not sure what to say?

To the Bermea Family,

My heart goes out to you all. Roland was a class mate of my father, Gaston Rodriguez, in Medical School in Mexico. Both of them moved to the Chicago area to practice medicine in the 1950s. I had the privilege of knowing Dr. Bermea and his lovely wife Barbara along with all their children -- Barbara, Michael, Linda, Jean and Mark. Our families enjoyed many great memories together as we grew up in the 1960 and 1970s.

I will hold Roland in my heart...

Dear Barbara -- I do not have a current address for you and the condolence note I sent to your Galena address came back to me. But that's not important. I wanted to tell you, which I'm sure you know, what a sweet man Roland was and what a lovely couple you were. It's a devastating loss but I know you, with your love of life, will get through it.
My fondest regards and love--
Barbara Alexander
