Don was smiling every time I saw him, and Ann no doubt was the major reason. We were so delighted when Don carved a piece for Bill's son Will when he went to college. We have really missed the Ludwigs at Grace. May Light Perpetual shine upon Don.

We were so happy you brought your mom and dad to our pig pickin'. They were a "taste of home". We thought the world of them. I loved your dad's sense of humor. He was such a kind man, one from the greatest generation. It says a lot about them, that you are their daughter. His was a life we'll lived.
Our deepest condolences to you and your mom.
