to our cousins,
It was always a joyous time when Bob and Claudia jouneyed north to visit the Sioux City area cousins. Werner remembers way back to 1932 when Claudia, her mom and dad visited on the farm near Odebolt. We mourn but rejoice that she had a peaceful release and is with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. "Precious on the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." Pslams 116:15 Blessings always, cousin Werner and Helen Wetzstein
