    Hi, I was looking up our son’s business e-mail address and there you were. Your middle initial is different from his. So, there must be some relative connection as our last names are not very common…to say the least. My husband’s relatives are mostly in Wisconsin, Green Bay and thereabouts…he has a brother in Bend, Oregon and another in the Milwaukee area.
    Now I need to find what Mike’s new e-mail address is. Regards, Loretta Kryzanek….nearly 52 years ago, my name was Miller!
