Dear Carl and other family members. I pulled up obit from Bradley Funeral Home and saw the picture of your sister. Wow! You could really see the resemblance. It's hard we are at that point of our life when our loved ones are being called home. I am so sorry for your loss. Always a friend and classmate. Janet (Rosio) Schoblaska
