Mrs. Rothbauer will truly be missed. She was so so sweet. Every day when she came to the Post Office, she would make it a point to step in and say hi. She would also share her stamps with me. She remembered one time that I was looking for Marilyn Monroe and Hank Williams stamps, and she had some and brought a few for me. I will forever save those stamps and never forget her kindness. God Bless the Rothbauer family. My prayers are with you all.

I grew up right down the road from both Marvin and Rose. These were two very fine people. Everytime I would go by there house and they were outside they never failed to wave at me. Marvin and Rose were friends of my dad and mom Taylor and Leona Biehunko. Marvin a meticulous carpenter did a wonderful add on to my parents home in the early 80's. They were both hard working people. Rose is now with Marvin I'm sure bringing him up to date on what has been happening in Moulton. God bless the entire family.
