Oh Jim, I have been away now since 2005. I didn't realize we had lost you. Thank you for the trust you gave me, sending me to school, allowing me to serve the folks of Glasford. You were a good man, teacher and friend. May God bless you and Mrs. Ausderau. Until we meet again old friend.

My condolences to my Ausderau 'cousins'. While we have never known one another, I still feel the loss as I am an avid genealogist and have long followed this line. His father Loren and my grandfather George were brothers. Please know you are in my thoughts.
