Dear Hoffman family,

We wish to express our sincere sympathy for the loss of your mother. She and your dad were good neighbors and friends for many years with my parents, George & Valmeda Barr, when they lived in Gatesburg. How fast that time goes for all of us.

May God bless you and comfort you all during this very difficult time.
