  15. Kevin McOlgan condolence:

    Mickie helped me so much during my early years at RB. I always looked forward to her visits, often just to chat. It gives me comfort to know she is at Abraham Lincoln cemetery – just south of my Laraway School, where I taught before my career at RBHS. I’ll always remember seeing both of you at mama’s nursing home in Knoxville several summers ago when you made the long trip to Galesburg. What a wonderful surprise and just about as thoughtful as could be. Sending much love to you, Nicole!
