Our condolences to the entire Raab family. Annette will always be remembered fondly by Oscar and I. She was a pillar of strength and had that "Michalec" stubbornness and stamina. She will be missed.

So sorry about your loss. A great friendship was created between our family and yours all those years ago when you moved to Oxford, IN. Many hours spent in your basement and at our house in the barn getting ready for "supervised" hayloft parties. Keeping all of you in our prayers.
