From Connie & Murray Flory...

So sorry for loss!! Donnie was just a beautiful person to be around. I remember her as always happy and as a kid spending the night with Connie I just felt part of the family. I hope all the wonderful family memories bring you comfort in the days to come.

Our condolences to the Lindholm family. You don’t know us but my grandfather’s name is Emil Lindholm. He was born In Sweden in 1869 and raised his family in KC, KS. He died in 1956. He and his wife, Caroline Johnson, had only one son, Raymond, who only had one son, Robert; all deceased. Perhaps my grandfather had brothers that I don’t know about. If you have any information about a connection to our family, I would appreciate you letting us know. You have my e-mail address as per this post. Many thanks, Carl (and Joyce) Burkhead, Lawrence, KS.
