  1. Dear Karen & family,
    Sorry to read about your mom passing away. I had a Christmas card from her just last month, so was surprised to read the notice in the paper. We were always going to get together, but some how never did in these later years. I still remember playing cards with her, your uncles, and your grand-mother when we lived in the same neighborhood. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Now she & your dad are back together. I hope she did not suffer during her last days here on earth. Sincerely, Dorothy Thomas

  2. Gregg ! Our thoughts, and prayers are with you, and the Lemke Family.
    Sincerley, Bill Kloster
