Jim, I was so sorry to read about the loss of your mom. She and I were very good friends in high school. I also am sorry to hear about your step-brother. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Lynn (Tuchalski-Kubesh) Kielhold.

Dear Jack and Family,
Our deepest sympathy to all of you. We were in Milwaukee yesterday and our son, John, informed us of Nancy's death. It caught us off guard, to say the least.
Please know we are with you in spirit and prayer as you go through this time of sadness and grief.
Nancy was a wonderful employee, co-worker and friend. We enjoyed many good years together at Headwaters.
God bless her and all her family.
