Justin and Family,
Our sincere condolences on the passing of your grandfather. We know how close you are to him and we are saddened to think of the sorrow you are now feeling. I wish there were words to say to help ease the pain but I don't believe there are. Please just know how many people care and that we are keeping you in our thoughts.
So very sorry for your loss.

With sincerest sympathy,
Joanne and Herb Wyand (Christian's parents)
