    I’m so sorry about your loss. It has been fun over the past 50+ years to have a running joke with both Joe and Helen about borrowing a dollar. That started when my dad, Muzzy, and Joe were on City Council together. Helen was one of the nicest ladies I knew. She will be missed. Thinking of you.

    Breunig Girls: I know we’ve already talked but wanted to once again tell you how much we loved your mother and dad. Your mom was such a wonderful person and friend to my mother and your dad and my dad were best friends for at least 60 years. We had so much fun with all of you over the years. Aunt Helen will be greatly missed but Mom, Dad, and Uncle Joe now have a foursome.
