To the Entire Rex Family,Sorry for your loss. I remember your mother from church as we were all growing up. She was on hell of a woman to put up with all of you. I can still remember walking down North Second Street on the way home from the pool and seeing her corralling  you all in.  I had and still have  the pleasure to know some of your family and my prayers are with you all. Sincerely,Steve Hluschak
