Arlys, Richard, Arthur and Norma---I have such fond memories of your Mom! She always took the time to come to our family special events. Your Mom was a sweet person and my Mom was always keeping me up to date about her in the recent years before she passed away. My prayers and thoughts are with your family at this time of losing a special person. She lived a long loving life!

Dear Norma and family, I knew Ella closer than Sally, but I remember them both fondly each occasion we had together, mostly at Wegner times. My family's prayers are with you all as Sally joins her siblings and Mother's Olp sisters in the Father's Great Reward. - Blessings, Sandy
