  • I am sorry for the loss of Mrs. Kratzer. She was always very nice to us in Jr. Hi and High School. Putting up with a sometimes noisy group of girls

  • Grandma,

    I remember many visits spending time talking and laughing with you. Once, I had you laughing so hard, you were in tears. I always treasured time with you, walking by the river, or baking pies together. You grew the sweetest cucumbers I ever tasted.

    I am glad beyond words that God gave us the chance to see each other last August, when you got the chance to play with Caity and Ian. Now those memories are among my fondest. I love you and deeply miss you. Laura
