Sympathy to Toby Vennechenko and family on the passing of his brother, Tim.
Sympathy also is extended to the family and friends of Holly Olson.
Holly was a kind-spirited and loving girl. Always wearing a smile, she always would ask, “How are you doing?”
She will be missed by many but definitely never forgotten.

So proud of myself. Yes, it was a scarf but still let’s be positive here.
