    To Family of Fred Malnar,

    Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your loved one.

    During Fred’s short stay at Christian Park Village, I found Fred to be a very appreciative and giving man. I can only imagine what a wonderful life he had with his family and friends.

    Do hold on to all the wonderful memories that you have of Fred and know that one day you may share those memories with him. Until then, his love remains with you here on earth.

    May it comfort you to know that God is with you and that I am praying for your family during this most difficult time.
