The Stauthammers were such a wonderful family. They took in my brother, Ricky Austin, after he was wounded in Vietnam. They treated him so well. I remember Mrs. Stauthhammer's warm smile and good food. How amazing that she lived and loved for 96 years! This world was better for her being in it. I hope you feel her love.
