Thank you Debra. Wish that we would have been able to do more neighborhood/association gatherings this past year. And it seemed when there were the gatherings it was a conflict with appointments.

Our sincere condolences to Judy & Pat and all of Jeanette’s family. I grew up in her neighborhood on the farm, went on the same school bus as the Mikolaseks, and we got hair cuts by Frank. I remember when she got married.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
