Sending sympathy to the family. I remember your parents and they were very nice people. Usually ran into your dad at Jon’s Country Burger’s and he was taking home some food for your mom. I went to school with Mark at St. Casimir and O’Rafferty. I lived on Sparrow just down the street from your folks. May your mom rest in peace with our Lord and is now with your dad. Blessings to all the family.
Sincerely,
Donna (Kulpa) Queen

Mike and Margaret, my deepest condolences on the passing of your Mom. I don’t remember your Mom too much, but would see her on occasion. I remember your Dad. I would see him in church quite often and at the bank branch where I worked. My thoughts and prayers are with your family, may she rest in peace.
