You and Doris were the best neighbors anyone could have. My parents, My parents, Wilson and Melvinia Webb lived on the neighboring farm (an Onley farm) and you helped them tremendously thru the years. Often thank God for those years, the rich memories, and the great relationship we had with your family. May you have God's assurance and His great peace. Thankyou
