Our best wishes to the Schatz family from us out here in Colorado. We've heard some great stories of Joan from Mary and regret never meeting her in person. She was a blessed woman to have such a big family. Love to all, Adam, Elizabeth and Fiona. Reply to this comment

Nicole, I am so sorry to hear about your mother! She was such a sweet lady. I sat beside her at Olivia's reception and enjoyed talked to your mom & dad. I lost my mom in 1986 and it still hurts! I will pray for you and your family. Love, Becky and Van Reply to this comment
