Ted, my husband Craig and I send your and your family our sympathies on your brother's passing. We did not know him, but if he was half as nice as you, he was a great guy. We will keep you all in our prayers.

Dear Kreifels family,
My prayer and condolences are with you in Gary’s passing. May Christ be with you at this time. Gary was involved with the LaSalle club he wanted the best for the love of his single friends there.
