    Our condolences on the loss of Shirley. It was always fun to visit with Shirley and she was one that always liked to tease. I got to see her at Ron Knable’s at the graduation party and we had a nice visit. Although I didn’t get to see her often, I will miss her at the family gatherings. Hope to be there on Tuesday.

    Dennis and Debbie, So sorry to hear of your mom’s death. She was a good friend and when we lived close on the north side, both of you were my babysitters for Kathie. I know she liked having Dennis because he would play cars and farm with her and he rescued her kitten out of the bathroom air vent when the adventurous little cat had too much curiosity. My sympathy to the family. My last name at that time was Konen and I lived on 6th St across from the school.
