Dear Mohr Family,
My deepest sympathy on your loss. I have known “Red” all my life. Last I saw him in August 2017. I was thrilled to see him and Tootsie. I hadn’t been “home” in a very long time and I always loved seeeing Red and Tootsie. Scott, you have such loving parents and I very much appreciate seeing them when I come to visit “home”. May god help guide you all through this difficult time and I hope “Red” is up there celebrating and I’m sure my Pappy along with others are welcoming him with open arms up in heaven. Hugs to you all.
