Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Your mom and dad were very special people.

I remember some of the good times we had at the two room school house in Bonnots Mill.

The time, I think both of you boys came to school with Mohawk hair cuts. Sister Jean Marie had a fit.

I especially remember staying with you all for a week or two the summer after we moved to Jeff City and when Gordon and I (I was driving) were taking the Ford tracter thru town with the hay rake on it and I came around the corner at Krautmans and the rake caught the Shell gas pump and the pump swayed back and forth and the glass globe came off and shattered on the sidewallk.
