    To Mandy if you are reading this)

    I cannot imagine the impact to you and the girls. I hope that over time you can deal with this and find some comfort and solace . He was a unique, extra-ordinary warm man that we will all miss greatly and are glad to have shared time with. This gives us all some very small insight into your loss but to me your sense of grief is still unfathomable.

    Take care

    Dirk, Anne and Girls
