    Denny & Tam, Doug & Kathy, Duane & Judy and families,
    My sympathy to all of you. I’m glad that I could help celebrate his birthday at his party in January as you all created more memories that day. A funeral is even more difficult with this COVID-19 situation and I feel your loss. I have requested a Mass offering for next week for Norm. Harriet Jakub
