Don and Brandt family,

I didn't know your mom for very long, but she was always so sweet to me. I had a fun time learning how to play Euchre with her and I cherish the snowmen salt and pepper shakers she gave me. My heart and prayers go out to you all.

Dear Brandt Family,
I have fond memories of your dear mom. She was always sweet and smiling whenever I would come with my dad (Harry Plonski) to pick up manure for his garden. I asked her more than once in my childhood how she cooked and prepared meals for so many kids..... and then she offered to make me a sandwich with a huge grin on her face. She expressed her love for all of you kids! I know that my mom and dad were very fond of your parents.
I hope that happy memories bring smiles and peace.
