    We remember the poker games we played with Judy & Elroy. The softball games we played together with our wives & kids having a picnic at the games. The times we worked at Rosco. When you sold tires from our wards store at the Twister. Sheila working for you as a teen. Bobby towing Sheila’s car out of the ditch. Collen & Lisa coming to our house to play cards. Many more fond memories. Love & Hugs,
    Rae & Niles

    I am so sorry to hear about “Mac”. I heard about it on the obituaries on the local radio. I was shocked. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen him, but your family was always nice to me when I lived at the trailer park many years ago. He will be sadly missed but the memories of him will be with your family always and he is at peace now and in the Lord’s hands. He is watching over your family and he is in your hearts forever. Again I am so sorry.
