Sending thoughts and prayers to your family during this difficult time!
Dear Ben and Veth, grandchildren and other relatives,
Xenia was an amazing friend who spoke the truth in love, prayed fervently and loved deeply. She loved her family so much and often spoke of how proud she was of Veth and her grandchildren. I will be praying for you all during this time of grief and rejoicing. Xenia will be spending her first Easter with Jesus and you know she will be in the front row singing hosanna at the top of her lungs! With much love, Terri DeLano
