To Barbara's children- I was sorry to read of your Mother's passing. I was one of four 13 year olds who had a wonderful 10 week camping trip around the US and into Mexico and Canada over the summer of 1953. Your Dad had been my junior high teacher. Your folks slept in the Nash Ambassador sedan which had front seats that laid flat and we boys used a tent or the open air. It was a unique experience that I have not and will never forget. Your folks could not have been nicer to us. We learned so much about our country and also that Spam could be served in dozens of ways.

Your were blessed to have had such great parents. May they Rest In Peace.
