    Dear Stremme Family

    I am sorry to hear about your dad.  Brings back memories from South Holland.  I remember how he used to whistle for you all when it was time for dinner. My husband and I were just talking about that the other day.  I am sorry that I cannot be there, but due to Covid-19 I am not doing any type of gatherings.  Know that I will be there spiritually.  My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
