To My Dear Wife Velna,
We do not know why we are sometimes called upon to go through seemingly unbearable crises. You have been through so many. I am so proud of your brave and courageous determination. I just want you to know how fortunate I have been to share your life with you, to feel your strength, to share your faith and--through it all--you have always maintained your sweet and gentle disposition. You have always remained kind to everyone, even to those who may not have always earned your kindness.
Never never give up. We give you all of our faith, all of our prayers, and we know there will be a brighter and more hopeful tomorrow.
Your loving husband,
