    Dear Monika, Debb, Jeanette and Claus,
    Dave and I have such fond memories of our years on Avalon Street and we were blessed to have such amazing neighbors in Ed and Monika! My children have great memories of amazing baked goods and fresh produce being delivered from across the street that has me wondering why did we ever move. :)
    Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all in this most difficult time.
    “May the Angels welcome you to paradise, may the martyrs greet you on your way, may you see the face of the Lord this day. Alleluia, Alleluia”

    Love and prayers
    Dave and Carol Schafer
