Don, Peggy and Mary Sue, Your mother was the last of the Kuhlman Road homesteaders from the 1950's. I recall the neighborhood our parents created for us to grow up in. We owe much to them for the blessings that followed from their efforts. May she rest in peace.

Martha and Vic were dear friends of my parents. Both were wonderful people and I always smile when I think of them. Prayers for all of the family.
