Aunt Lorraine and Family - I am so sorry for your loss. Even thou we have not been visiting much these past years, you have been thought of often. When I reminisce of the family get togethers, I remember the card playing the most. And the laughing everyone did when Uncle Donnie had a great hand or when he could trick someone. It always brings a smile to my face. I send my sympathy to each of you. Your niece/cousin, Kris (Kleckner) Maynard
