  1. Barb and Pam,

    My condolences on the passing of your mother. I remember both her and your dad fondly when they use to car pool with my Dad, Bernie Pavelka, back in the days when your Dad and mine worked at the Lincoln Journal Star. I hope her long life and the memories she brought to your families will help you through this sad time.

    With sincere sympathy to you and your families.

  2. Barbara, I haven’t seen you since we graduated from LNE, but I want to let you know that I’m sorry to read of your mother’s death. May she rest in peace.
    Linda (Jackson) Hoke

  3. Our love and prayers are with you all!
    Barry and Nancy Yeager
