Very sorry to hear about Mrs. Olschefski’s passing. I enjoyed talking with her when visiting my Mother at Miller. And, it was nice to spend time with her and her daughters at the Christmas party this past year. My thoughts are with you all.

My sympathy to the entire family. I am sorry that I will be unable to attend the service. As you know I am still in Florida. I will miss chatting with Rose Mary. She always updated me on you 'kids' and the grandsons. Blessings to you all. Cousin Martha Lou
