Greg, Holly, and "little man" , Naomi and I worked together for more than 20 years before we discovered we were 5th or 6th cousins. My mother was a "family tree" buff. Imagine my surprise when I found Grandma and Grandpa Hapke from Germany. They were married in the 1700's. I brought a copy of the wedding picture in to show Naomi and her response was "I have that picture in my trunk!" We had quite fun with calling each other "cuz" at work and on Facebook. I will truly miss her comments on life and politics. And thank you so much for giving her a grandson that was truly the most special gift she could have ever received . Much Love and Sympathies, "Cuz" Vonda R. Dole
