ADD A MEMORY

Dear Ed, I am a fellow classmate of yours (Harding '68) and though you may not remember me, I do you, and am so sorry to learn of your Brothers passing. I am from a big family, 2 sisters and four brothers. We lost a brother 10 years ago and it is definitely an emptiness that is different because you were siblings so long, knew everything about each other and shared so much. Those wonderful memories will help you handle that emptiness. He will forever be in your heart. I hope you will be at the reunion so I can just get a chance to say hello. Take care and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Diane Rhodes Hueske, Harding Class of 1968

I am glad that I got see Kenneth at the Harding West reunion last year. It had been many years, but he was the same Kenneth that I knew from when we were kids.
