I'm so sorry to hear this news. I had a lot of fun memories  that came flooding back remembering the many many hours of riding horse over and spending time at your farm. You have my heart felt sympathy. Love to your family Joan Grove

Our prayers and sympathies to Shirley and her families.  He is the nicest neighbor we ever had.  He did like his ice cream.  He took such good care of his milking cows.  The farm was always in a neat order.  We loved watching the cows in the pasture.
Respecfully, Dale & Donna Falksen
