Not sure what to say?

Mr. Vanderhei was a hard working person. I played football with him at Bloom. He was ahard guy to tackle because of his speed ^ strength. He also worked at Biamontes Tavern
Then I worked with him on the railroad as a Switchman & he was an Excellent Yardman & a great Parent. I had one of my retirement parties. He made me the best Beef sandwichs for me. I will miss him very much a great person to have in my memories. God Bless him.
