Friend Pittsburg , Kansas

Mike, Patrick and Chris, I don’t know if you will remember me but I was your babysitter when you all lived in the house by the bypass. I was so sorry to read about your mothers passing. Fran was always so wonderful to me and never forgot me and always spoke when she saw me in later years. Our families knew each other, your Grandpa Gendusa, and that’s how I got the job. Please know that I am sending prayers to you and your families and again am so sorry for your loss. Cathy Blessant Estenson
