I am so sorry for your loss. It is very difficult to lose a parent. Since I have known all of you since I was about 3 years old, there are so many memories I have with Charleton, Gretchen, Rachel, Johnathan, and Erica. Karl, and Cindy, I knew as babies. I am so glad I got to be a part of your lives. I liked being with you, because there was always something cool going on. I remember your Dad worked at the Auction barn on Wednesday nights. He and my Dad always talked whenever Daddy brought his car into Kovar Ford. Something else I remember, is the pig that escaped. I was confined to the house for a while. I was looking out a window into the backyard, when here came a big pig going at a pretty fast trot. After it crawled through the fence, and took off, here came Raymond, and one of his brothers, running to catch up with that pig! They won, and the pig lost. They all came back through the fence after a while, each man carrying half of the pig. Thinking back, even half of that pig must have been really heavy; especially having to crawl through a fence with it. I had my 1st (and last) rotten tomato fight in your backyard. That was so much fun. I had never gotten to do anything like that before. There are just so many good memories. Gretchen, it was so wonderful to have your friendship. Those were good times.
The Lord bless all of you and keep you. The lord make his countenance to shine on you; and, give you peace. Carol; your neighbor and friend.
