From your Postal Family Alex, our sincere condolences to you and your family.
We are sorry for your loss Om. You were the most loving and devoted daughter, and you spent so many years insuring she was taken care of around the clock. You and your family deserve so many accolades for the sacrifices you made to give her a long life. It seems so long ago when I used to see her up on your balcony watering her beautiful flower pots. What a lovely lady she was. Lots of hugs from us to you Om, Thai, Ming, and Jasmin! Patrick and Jan Weiher
