Dear Fenella and the family of Flinns, at the top of the hill you made many feel welcome, I was one you welcomed, especially as we loved and cared for David Yassen and supported our Dear Friend Betsy Voss Lease. You all served our community well in many ways..

I went to Wapakoneta High School with Kermit. He was a great person and friendly to everyone. He was a good athlete and role model.
I got to visit with him at the 50th class reunion. Very sorry to hear of his death and feel your loss. Sally Carter Snyder

If you hold down your corner of Heaven like you did first base for the 1967 Redskins, all will be well in Heaven and on Earth. It was very special to see you and talk at the 2017 WHS reunion.
