Many wonderful memories of picnics at Lake Belton's McGregor and Cedar Ridge parks, trips to Riverside Swimming Pool, and playing cards at the house. In later years, there were the special Christmas cards and handwritten letters. End of an era that was an enjoyable period in life. Prayers for comfort for the family.
