I remember the times your Mom and Dad would come by George and Doris' house before going on to the farm in Coyanosa. Your parents were great people and I always enjoyed visiting with them. Then after marrying Mark I would see your parents at the Soil Conservation meetings and conventions with Jerline. Again they were always so nice to visit with. Such caring individuals. May they both rest in heavenly peace.
