Cheryl, Carol, Bob, and Ron,
Thinking of you all and missing family times with you all and your mom and dad. They were so special! I enjoyed visiting your mom and dad over the years, your mom was very proud of you all. I missed visiting your mom last fall, but now she can see her “honey bunch” every day.

Cheryl, Carol, Bob and Ron:

Deepest sympathies and I wish I could be back for Aunt Elaine's funeral. I just found out 2.5 weeks ago that my job has been eliminated. I have 2 interviews on Tuesday that I can't change.

Again deepest sympathies.

Joe Krejci
