  • Dear Linda and family: Sending you sympathy wishes in the loss of your dear mom; she was a wonderful individual. So was your dad; I worked for him for years at Kadlec Hospital. We are snowbirding in Arizona – therefore cannot get to the funeral services. You will all be in Ray and my prayers during this difficult time. I would love to receive your e-mail as I would like to contact you personally. Love to all and we do have fond memories of both your mom and dad. Prayers to all – Mille and Ray Nierman
