  1. I want to extend my sympathies to you. Katy and Becky, I so enjoyed getting to know your parents at Axtell Clinic and then meeting and getting to know you. Your parents were special people and you will always have very good memories of them. I know I do and I only knew them a short time.

  2. Sincere sympathy to all the
    family. Sorry I couldn’t attend the funeral.
    I have known your family for many, many years.

  3. Condolences to the Seibel family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, “heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” May God bring you comfort and peace.
