Not sure what to say?

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Svensson for over 30 years. He was the most pleasant, sweetest man I have ever known. I'm sure that he took the express lane straight to heaven. I think of him often since I retired in 2015. I will miss
him. He made the world a better place. My

We wish God's comfort and peace to Aunt Janet and family.
