Dear Lori, and my Collien cousins, deepest sympathy to you all.

I remember family visits when Norm and I were growing up, playing at the Colliens, as well as at our house in Lomira.

I also fondly remember playing music at your wedding dance.

In later years I recall chatting in the parking lot at Miller Park, about ten years ago, prior to a Brewers game.

And I'm happy we had a chance to talk when I visited at Hope during the winter.

The years have gone too quickly.

So sad to read about Gabby. What a great guy. The only guy who could carry on a conversation while swinging his club off the tee. I(Greg) remember him saying telegraph, telephone or tellawoik.. Lots of laughs with Gabby. Sure will miss him. Take good care of yourself. Sending lots of love.
