Donna, Marie and family, Sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was a wonderful person. I had a great visit with her and your dad many years ago when I did some of my genealogy interviewing about the sedlak family. My mother and dad, Dolores and Link, send their sympathy to you too. Mom is not in great shape and has trouble walking,and my Dad hurt his back last week, otherwise they would have made it to the funeral home in person. Know we are all thinking of you and may God always bless you where ever you go. Beth Veres Pansino
