The best memories ever were the Myers reunions in Gene's barn. Grandpa, Gene and all the Uncle's would get their instruments out and play some foot stomping music. He would have the hay ride ready to go and the fire going for the weenie roast. What a great time we had. Sure going to miss him.
Thoughts and prayers to all. Love Jeannie.
