    Dear Keith
    We met at your son Colin’s wedding to our daughter Margaréta in London in May 2015.
    Since then we only communicated in writing. At first, when you and Merethe lived in Jamaica, later when you moved to Montreal, CA.
    We kept our fingers crossed for you when your health deteriorated.
    We say a big thank You for getting to know you.
    Irena & Ivan, the parents of your daughter – in – law Margareta
    Tomas brother of Margareta.
