Dear Foltyn Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. He was such a good man. I remember him ringing the bell when it was time for all of the children to come inside from play. Such good times in our lives... :-) I always felt y'all were the perfect family! May your faith in God sustain you through this time and always.
