    So sorry for your loss. We are cousins, my mother was Philliphina Reich. She passed away 11 years ago and aunty Anna called me and asked if I could send her a video of the funeral and I did. She sent me a letter after she got the video. I kept her letter and will forward it on to you, see attachment.

    • Marlene Johnson (McKerracher) says:

      I would like to remember Mrs. Thomas for all the great memories we all made living in Casino. Our lives have crossed again through Stephen who has been great friends with my Grandson Jordan Jansonious I spent many hours watching the boys play basketball and lots of birthday parties. I remember barn dances, big gardens, lots of events in the Casino school where a lot of us went to in our one room. I remember going horseback riding, getting stuck in the mud just below your house, the milk house, and many more I will be thinking about you and your family. Love Marlene
