Condolence & Memory Journal

My condolences to the Lobsiger and Heare families. I know how hard this must be for all of you. I will miss Kaye's beautiful smile and positive attitude. I am so happy I had a chance to spend time with Kate at our reunion at Lake Gage in July. We had a great time chatting about our growing up years on the farm and when she and her family came to visit me in Seal Beach, CA. So happy for the wonderful memories. Rosemary Schlickman Stevenson
