  • Katy and Jim,
    I was hoping to come out and be with you but things did not work out. I am glad Jimmy will be a pall-bearer and can represent the Korologs. Fella and I send healing thoughts to both of you. Aunt Sophie was such a regal woman and always was a joy to be around.
    All our love,
    Patsy (Korolog) and Fella Mulberger.

  • Kathy and Jim-
    Our deepest condolences to your family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
