I would like to express my sympathy to the family of "Bob" - King. I too, grew up in the Pickard area, graduating from S C - and knew him, his brother and parents - nice hard working family. Time and life sometimes takes us from our roots, but will remember "our roots" in Pickard. Prayers to your family
