  1. It is with a great deal of sadness that Lucille and I read of the passing of Heidi Christenson. Our thoughts, Condolences and Prayers go out to Jim and all of his family. Although we have not known them as long as some, we have fond memories of chatting with them and especially Niah and her annual gift of “Lucky Bucky’s” on our ride to the Museum. Rest in Peace Heidi. You will always be remembered at the Doodle Bug Reunions.
