To the Kaiser Family:

I was so saddened to hear of your Mom's passing. With every friend or relative that leaves us, particularly those that were such a large part of your childhood, it hurts so much. It makes us realize how very precious life is, but also how very quickly it passes by.

Your Mom & Dad and the rest of the Kaiser family have always meant so much to the Doutys. The memories that we have can never be taken away and will always be there to carry us through the difficult times.

Just know that your Mom & Dad are together again and looking out for all of us here on earth until we meet again.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sincerely,

Gary & Penny Douty
