  1. Dear Larissa,

    I just want you to know how saddened we were to hear of poor Michael’s sudden passing. I remember your parents so well. They were a fun loving and made a handsome couple and Marie had such gorgeous thick hair. Met them at the Hoye’s several times. I only remember Michael vaguely as he was younger than Julian and Rob but always thought what a lovely close family you all were and I was shocked at your Mom’s passing, didn’t realize that your Dad had passed also. Know it must be very difficult for you to live with this and your tremendous loss, but know you have close relatives and friends who will be of comfort to you in your difficult times. Feel free anytime to email me if you need an outsider to talk or connect to.
    With love and condolences from the boys and Roy to you.
