I am so sad to hear about Mrs. Grfffin's passing. She had such a great sense of humor. When I saw her at an icecream social in 2008 she joked around and made me laugh a lot. The world is a bit sadderw with her passing.

It is too bad that I can not make it to the funeral but my home in Germany is just too far away.
