Chris, Dave, Jackie, and families, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was the person who gave me my first full time job, and I will never forget her!! I also want to apologize for not making it to the funeral, as I had to work this weekend. Your mom was always fun, smiling, and very proud of all of you. May God bless you all, and keep your memories of her close to you. Much love and friendship, Marcia Schleicher
