  2. Some sad news Thursday morning. Margaret and I were neighbors for over 30 years. I really enjoyed talking too her. She was not afraid to voice her own opinion and that’s what I liked about her. She was also very kind and generous. She will truly be missed.
    My Sympathies to the Lautzenhiser Family,
