    Hello Margie and family.

    I was so sad to hear of Mr. Fleege’s passing.

    Very fond memories of him, the man with the big bear hugs!

    My Dad always smiled when talking about him. A lifetime friendship.

    May your fond memories bring a smile to your face as you pass down this part of the road in life.
