So sorry to learn of Vi's passing. It was always a joy taking Vi & Mom (Della) to Holy Family for the senior's luncheon and to bridge. I'm sure there's one heck of a bridge game going on now!
Seeing your mom's obituary brought back memories of Highland Ave. and walking to Kindergarten with MaryAnn every day. I am sure you have many happy memories of the family through the years.
Dear Franz and family
So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was a great lady. I will remember her in my prayers. God Bless all of you.
Our sincere condolences.
