Howdy I was wanting to know in case those who have been to Bansko a short while ago could give us ideas about how much tghnis out there cost. could do with several idea on food and drink rates so we all understand how much we need to save. we'd prefer to learn breakfast lunch and dinner selling prices as were going self catering (lunch will be on the mountain so all of us expect it will be more) plus the different ends of each one of those, and so a quick inexpensive dinner in comparison with a THREE course the works' dinner. As well a alcoholic and no alcoholic drinks rough estimate is wonderful too (wine, light beer, spirits, diet pepsi for example.)

Dear Jimmy and the Traupel Family, we are sad to hear of your loss. We shared many cups of coffee with Mary Lou over the years. She was always warm and friendly and interested in us and our families. Our thoughts are with you in your loss. Blessings to all of you.

Our family's thoughts and prayers are with the Traupels. We've known you all for so many years and had a lot of great family time together. Mary Lou and Jimmy's friendship with our mother has always been so important to her. Mom was really sad today when we shared the news with her. She will be coming to Mitchell to join you at the service for May Lou.
