Carol, Tony and I contributed bags of dog food to the Humane Society, then took lots of sweaters, hair bows and scarves to the Dog Pound here locally yesterday. You are all in my prayers! I would love to go to the Mass & Funeral but I have to work today. Please call at the office if I can do ANYTHING during this stressful time. Rev. Donna Hughes

Oh my, what GREAT memories I have from the Nyhuise family. Fantastic slumber parties. I have always thought of Mrs. Nyhuise throughout the years when I have had coffee, bacon and chocolate covered donuts. What a special treat that was. David, Margie, and Carol--so very sorry for your loss. Bright side --she is with the love of her life Chester now. Hopefully, you can find comfort with that. Keeping you all in my prayers.
