    You will be so missed. Have know you since the early 1960’s. Grew up next door to your beatiful family. We have had so many talks over that fence between our house. Even after my mom and dad passed, we still had our chats. We all should be happy to have known you, but are sad you are gone. But praise tbe Lord you no longer need that walker and oxygen and can run with the best. Love you Donna Stastny and all your family.
