My heart is aching today. Cricky was a joy to know. She, Shawn & the kids were my neighbors and Cricky was my grandson's first babysitter. To the Bock & Lang families, know that Cricky will be remembered for her vibrant personality and her service to the community. Sharon "Chellew" Poppen & family.
