    Denny and Kristi. I'm sorry for the passing of your mom Mary. I know this is late but I just seen it. I know she was a sweet woman and I'm glad I got to see her again last summer at the garage sell. You too Kristi. We all grew up in the same neighborhood so when one of our parents pass it's like losing family. May God bless your family and I hope things are getting just a little better. Parents are so special.  Sincerely Bob Kastli.
