Michael, Cathy, Patty and the entire family,
I just heard the news about your Mom. I wanted to offer my sympathy and prayers on her passing. I have so many great memories of all the time spent at your house, on your back patio and in your yard. I remember your mom always making hotdogs on the hibachi and feeding us after ball games or just hanging out. She was a big sports fan and always was at your games and events. I remember so many times talking to her over the fence on the back patio or through the kitchen window while she was at the sink. I was always a little afraid of your dog and she would chuckle at me because of that. Your Mom was an amazing women and treated me like one of the family. I cherish the memories of those days and I hope that your memories of your Mom bring you all comfort as your grieve her loss. Peace and Love to you all! Dave Osterrieder
