Lorene Nichols

We did not know Lorene, but we learned of her passing from the Kansas City Star. She was a long-time associate of Harzfeld's. Her obituary can be found here.

We found this entry in the 1975 25 year club program.

Our sympathies go to her family and friends.

Hello Again

Since we last posted much has happened. We attended a beautiful memorial service for Patricia George. Our sympathies continue to go out to her family and fellow friends of this amazing woman.

Mary Sanchez of The Kansas City Star wrote a wonderful article on Harzfeld's entitled Harzfeld's was more than a store. We greatly appreciate her article and mentioning us and our book.

We have been scheduling a number of events over the next few months. We're very excited to have the opportunity to meet with those involved with or interested in Harzfeld's. The first of these events is Saturday, February 6, at the Barnes & Noble bookstore on the Country Club Plaza from 1 - 3 p.m.

We'll post several more events for February and March soon.
