Thank You From Marina Wirsing

To my LLCC family,

I want to thank everyone for their overwhelming support and sympathy after the loss of my husband, SFC Daniel J. Wirsing. The cards, flowers, emails and attendance at his funeral served to ease some of the pain over this unimaginable loss. Thank you for showing my family and I so much love and care. We feel tremendously blessed by our friends and family at LLCC.

God bless everyone,
Marina Wirsing
