When I remember how often and how sick Aunt Helen was as we were children growing up, it is a special miracle that she lived to be 100! Thanks be to God that she enjoyed so much good health, eventually! I also remember all the good times we had free range of the Tiktemeier farm during get-togethers at their place! It was a wonderful place to be a kid!
