I'm Grandpa's Princess. I will never forget how he always called me Princess even at the age of 32. One of the best memories I have with my Grandpa Richard and Grandma Patty is going on a road trip from Kansas to Las Vegas. They showed us so much a long the way. I'll never forget trying fried ice cream for the first time. Grandma Patty has had me hooked ever since. Ever time I order it I think of that time with them sitting in that Mexican restaurant eating fried ice cream. Memories can fade but moments last a life time.

Please note the welcome mat is always out at Spencer, WI for you to stop in and visit as your mom & dad did so many years ago on their way home from a square dancing gala🙂.

Dear Patty and family, We have enjoyed staying in touch with you and Richard at Elwoods, having good fellowship over delicious food. Although this was infrequent, because of the distance between Wisconsin and Kansas, we had some good laughter. Our sympathies, thoughts, and prayers this week for you, at Richard's sudden passing. During the loneliness in the next weeks, let us visit on the phone and talk genealogy and anything else? Sending our love now. Cousin Bruce and Jan Wilmeth, Whitehall, WI
