Petie Prontopup 1

Sandi Fredricks, left, and Kelli Oom, right, hand out cards good for free Pronto Pups on Thursday, in memory of Sandi’s mother, Petie Oom.

Thursday would have been Vera “Petie” Oom’s 84th birthday, so a few of her family members gathered in front of her favorite local “restaurant,” Pronto Pups, to remember Petie, who died late last month.

Petie’s daughter, Kellie Oom, and Kellie’s niece, Sandi Fredricks, handed out cards to passersby, good for a free corn dog.

Cards handed out bore a photo of Petie Oom, and a message encouraging kindness.
