Vicki, I was sad to hear of David's passing. I remember the morning rides to Joliet East with you and David and hanging out in Ingalls Park. I am so sorry for your loss. Georgiann

Vickie, My heart is sad for you and the rest of your family. I remember when you kids were young and David brought me a rose and then said, "I don't know why I did that." Maybe, because you called me "Ma." I remember David, your Mom and you with much love in my heart. My thoughts and love are with you. Rose Valek (AKA "Ma")
