We'll remember Mr. Holeman as a kind, thoughtful neighbor. He enjoyed hearing the antics of our nine grandchildren as they romped and played over the farm. During the years he gardened we were recipients of his harvest and were delighted to have fresh veggies. Bill especially enjoyed his visits with Mr. Holeman. They shared their respective armed services experiences, farming, county politics, etc.
