I knew the Ressler family more than 60 years ago when we were all members of Luther Memorial Lutheran Church in Fresno. Grandma Ressler was there also. They were a lovely family. Clinton was in my Sunday School class.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. I have very good memories of this wonderful family.
