I'm sorry I could not be there to pay my respects in person. The Schilling/Olson family has a special place in my heart and I have so many great memories that I will always hold onto. You have my deepest sympathy. Grandma Schilling was a fine lady. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time.

Im so very sorry for your loss. I have a lot of fond memories growing up on Leo Street where, at times, Gerry was a second mom.
