    Hi Jean, Rita & Michael. Blessings to you and your families. Rita, I have thought of you over the years and wondered how I could contact you. We lost track of each other after high school and oft times, I wished I could share some time with you. I will try and attend your father’s funeral on Friday. Please contact me. Hugs and kisses Kathy Griebel
