When growing up on the Lester and Bertha Schwerin farm, I walked to the one-room school across from
Arnold and Betty Frahm's farm. Two of us kids would go there to get water each morning for us kids to drink. I am sorry for the loss of your dear mother, and I am also sorry to read that your dear dad passed away already. May God comfort you, each one.
