I am so sorry to hear about Lavonne’s passing. I have so many wonderful memories with her while I was helping care for her. She was incredibly sweet and sometimes a little sassy but she was loved and will be missed. My sympathies go out to her family and the others who loved and cared for her as much as I did.
My sympathies to the Lauck Family. I always remember Melvin & LaVonne on the mail route when Dad was the rural carrier, and I visited with her briefly when she was a roommate to Mary Helen Kollasch at Good Sam. May she Rest in Peace. Linda K. Farrell, Whittemore
Our sympathies to your family Al.
