Lori and Thomas (Frankenbush) Breunig

I have so many wonderful memories growing up with Linda (my dear lifelong friend), Karen, Sammy, and Danny. Mike and Merle were always so welcoming. Mike always had a tease/joke with his dry sense of humor. He usually laughed or cracked a smile before I even "got it". Merle has always been so kind and friendly. Merle, I'm sending extra love to you. I will never forget the times I spent at your house in Skokie, our family trip to the Cayman Islands, or the Thanksgiving I spent with all of you in Arizona. Thinking of you all and your families. Thomas and I are send our heartfelt condolences. May his memory be a blessing.
