My sincere condolences to the entire Preuss family on hearing this news. Mrs. Preuss was always such a delight when growing up and attending Sacred Heart school with Jim. She always had a big smile and a cold drink or a snack for
"us kids" when we were in the alley passing the porch. May she rest eternally in God's arms.
