    "My heartfelt condolences go out to the Schut family. Remembering the many times out at the house, talking about antiques, cooking me dinner when I brought them stuff from auctions. The beautiful gladiola flowers that she & your dad grew. The whole slew of various cats & dogs that graced the home. A great lady! "
