I will always remember your laughter, your orneriness, your honesty in telling it like it is, the way that you cared for your family, my mother-in- law Clara Mae especially, our times dancing at family weddings, and sometimes on top of tables, you driving the big camper to Sandusky, the cookouts, and when we would be talking about someone, you would say "now I'm not talking about them". We would laugh at that. You left a great impression on my kids and me, and we will miss you greatly.
