Loved seeing pictures from "way back when". Our family and the
Derwood and Lily Smith family were pretty close-way back in the farming days. Remembering the old house and problems with skunks. Then the new house and the older Smith kids coming home from the "cities" with friends. Through the years our folks continued to have a very special friendship.
What special memories!

Our deepest sympathy.

Jim always had a very pleasant smile and a warm welcome. I met with his parents for years in White Bear Lake and have know Jim since we both were much younger. This will be a new chapter for you, Jan. You two were always Jim and Jan......always seen together.
