“Angie and family, We are so saddened to learn of the passing of your sweet Mom. I know my mom and your mom had some fun times when you were little- playing Bingo each week. Your mom was very kind, and raised you into a kind young lady. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time. I know how much both your Mom and Dad loved you. You were a wonderful daughter to them. Our sympathy to you all, Nancy Kunickis and Ashley Stumpf”
