Deepest Sympathy to you all. Sorry I didn't see this sooner. We lived very close to you at one time when we lived in town by the railroad track. I hope I have this right. My folks moved me to Florida when I was 10th grade in high school. A lot was because Dr's told Dad he had to get mom out of cold winters. I did live out in Colorado for 42 years before my sisters moved me back because of health reasons. Its nice to be close to family. My folks have passed which was Marion and Gerry Hill. I have one sister Janice that's close to me and helps me. Then Judy is in Tampa. The 3 of us do a lot together. We follow Southrn Gospel concerts. Mary Ann lives in Tn..
I am very close to Melvin & Verdean Ohlendorf in Sumner.
You all are in My prayers.
