    Dear Kathey and Family,
    I am very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. My heart goes out to you at this very sad time….although my memories are mostly of your dad, as soon as I saw the picture of your mom on this website I instantly remembered her from our childhood. Whenever I get to Escanaba it is a standing joke that I have to take a ride down south 9th street and re-live the old days & memories of all the good times I had living in Escanaba. Your family was a big part of those memories and I tihnk of you all quite often. I wanted you to know that I offer my sympathy to you for the loss of both of your parents.
