One of my cousins that I have kept in touch with since we were kids. He has come to visit us here in Iowa and we have visited with him and Monta in Tucson. We have seen Fred almost every winter for the past 8 years that we were in Mesa. My Mom, Nellie, and Fred's Mom, Sally were sister-in-laws and our 2 families were together often as we were growing up. Lots of fun to be had with those two! Once when Fred came to stay with us in Iowa the boys found a nest full of rotten eggs in the hayloft, got into an egg fight and Mom ended up giving them all a paddling. Just so many great memories. Love to all of you.
