Your Dad and Mom were true blessings to so many people but our family will treasure their friendship forever. Your parents hold a very special place in our hearts as they were always so kind to my Dad. Dad loved working for and with your Dad. He forged many friendships through his time at Laubis elevator. I hope that you will treasure the memories you have of your wonderful and kind parents, and may you pass this kindness on for generations. Thank you for allowing my Dad to be a part of the Laubis family and thank you for your family’s friendship. You are all in my prayers.
