Herbievwill be missed by her Neenah high school friends. Though I am not a Facebook guru I stumbled through my first time on FaceTime with Katherine at Christmas. How grateful I am! Good times in Girl Scouts (Mariners) too!
Chuck and I will hold her family close to our hearts as your memories are recalled bringing everyone peace.
