Dear Uncle Bob and family,
So sorry to hear that Aunt Agnes passed. We are out of the area for the weekend so are unable to be there with you. Aunt Agnes and all the Schroeder family always had fun and never short on words. Whenever the family got together, they all talked at the same time, however came away with most of the conversation. Wish we could be there but under different circumstances. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love, Mike and Rita
