    Dear Ryan and Jordan:

    I am so very sorry for your immeasurable loss. Your dad was and is, so very proud of you both. You cared for him in the most loving way and faced the long goodbye of cancer together. I am so proud of you. The world has lost a very special man. I am so glad the two of you remain as his legacy.

    Love Linda

    My sincere condolences to Peter’s family at this difficult time.

    Growing up in Armstrong Peter and his family were a major part of our social fabric.

    While I lost touch with Peter I have very fond memories of him. Always a gentle and kind person.

    Hopefully the pain of your loss eases as time passes.
