Brent, Jack, Jimmie, and entire Fetter family,sorry for your loss. I had every intention to visit this afternoon but moving preparations prevent it. I recall your Dad and Lawson from my early days in Bradford as my dad taught Vo-Ag at that time. We spent many happy hours at Lawson's visiting.

Gail & Family - My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I feel as though I've lost a family member as I spent many of my growing up years @ the Fetters home with my Best Friend Gail. I will continue to reflect on the many fond memories Gail & I made through the years with her family - thanks for allowing me to be a part of it all. My love and sympathy to Gail and her amazing family.
