My Dad, Cy Weissert, and Mae were 1st cousins. Our paths would sometimes cross over the years, and we connected at the Moose when she and Sertella both were active there. I remember being invited to her 80th birthday party at the Moose. I got to meet both Glen and Steven then. Please accept my sympathy in the loss of your Mom. She was a special lady,
