Our thoughts and prayers are with all the Kratzers who became well-known to us through Riverview Country Club and our friendship with Trina. Once you are good friends with one of the Kratzers, it's as though they make you honorary family members! Helen's wit, wisdom and thoughtful opinions are all good memories. Sorry that we won't be at the Memorial, but we will be thinking of her while enjoying the action at the Solheim Cup.
