  1. I spent t good deal of time at the Oshaneks, especially after Jackie got sick. Stella’s home was always comfortable and I found out about hot tomato sandwiches there. She had a breakfast for us the morning after our Senior prom.

    Jerri, I’m so sorry.

    Love, Carolyn Kaiser

My heartfelt condolences to Jerri & Bob, Craig & Kris and family, and Todd.
