  2. Dear Mom “O” & all the kidlets! Please accept our deepest condolences at your loss. I have very fond memories of time spent with your family. I especially remember the time I tried to showed Murray the rattlesnake tail in an envelope.. Murray opened the envelope after my spiel about the rattlesnake tail, and it didn’t work! I was so embarrassed. He must have thought I was nuts! (fit right in!). He helped so much while he owned his garage.
    Sending you all our love and prayers!

    Kathy Stadler (and family)
