    Not much good can be said about 2020, however I am so happy I was retired & able to pick you up & take you on some joy rides. Even though you would get mad at for not turning when you told me to! I especially enjoyed our ride thru Whitehall Park & impromptu stop at the beer garden. Followed by watching the deer grazing in the field. That was a good day. Love you.

    God Speed to my dear cousin, memories of the NJ Orr’s invading your home on our trips to WI, and all of the fun times that ensued! Memories keep us connected now. Much love, Donna

    I met Kathy on my 25th birthday which turned out to be her 30th and I considered her a life long close friend. She will be missed. Rest In Peace my friend.
