    To my friend Dan and the entire Kleiber family,

    My deepest condolences to you for the loss of your wonderful mother. Mrs. Kleiber was my first teacher in preschool with Dan and the mother of my oldest friend. I’ll always remember her smiling face and warm greeting whenever I entered your home.

    May she rest in peace.

    What can I say about my other “Mom” — I loved her and will miss her so much. Even when faced with so much grief and loss, she, along with the love and grace of God, raised eight beautiful children, who were her world. She always included me as one of her “kids” and always made me feel so loved and special. I will carry that love with me forever.

    Thanks “Mom” for your unconditional love — be at peace in your new home with God.

    All my love,

    I extend my deepest sympathy to all of the Kleiber children. Your mom faced more than her share of hardships in her life and yet, her faith endured. At least now she is at peace, and she is with your dad and her loving God. I have all of you in my prayers.
