Our thoughts are with the entire Vogel Family for your loss. As a child I remember many summer’s spent at the Vogel Farm following Mary as she worked around the farm then sitting around the big kitchen table enjoying the fruits of her labor. In later years when we would stop in to see her she always made sure there was coffee in our cups and a meal on the table. We never left hungry. These are memories I will always carry with me. There will always be a piece of her in every one of you that will go on for generations. All our love Randy & Vivian
