To Jeff and Family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Kristine and I attended Lapeer Pubic Schools together, I one year behind. We were very close one summer, living down the road from each other, spending time at her house all day long sometimes, and all night, too, sleeping in the house or in a tent in the back yard. Very memorable times. She will be missed. I was Ruth Glassbrook back then.
