I have so many wonderful memories of Uncle John and Aunt Bess. They were my Godparents. When they came to Mobridge to visit they treated all of us kids with such love.
As I grew older and had a family of my own I always shared photos of my children and grandson with them and I wish we lived closer so they could have known them when they grew up.
I saved all of my correspondence with them. Those memories are priceless.
