Loved the long ago visit with your family on the farm and the more recent visit in Arkansas. Thanks for sharing the pictures of a good marriage and lives lived well.

Ken and Marilyn were 2 of the easiest going, nicest people I knew back when they lived in Lismore, MN. Even though sometimes one of their children might get in a little trouble (I won't mentioned any names but his initials were Alan Rust), oops, they always handled it low key. This was obviously the reason they enjoyed such long lives. I truly enjoyed visiting with them and their family. They were deeply missed when they moved from our little town and now they will be missed as they reunite in heaven. God Bless them and their memory.
