  1. Paula,
    My sympathies on the passing of your mom. I remember all the fun that we all had together from picking up worms in the flower garden to those card playing marathons. Take care of yourself and your family.

  2. Dear Family,
    Fond memories flood my mind as I think of Dorothy and the family. Dorothy’s mother was the sister of my grandfather, Allen Brookhart. Many years have pased since I last saw any of the Balsiger family. I last remember Bob when he took off to California with my, then to be wife, Donna’s brother, Jimmy Burris, both Donna and Jimmy are deceased. How unfortunate that it takes the death of a loved one to reunite the family. But thanks be to God we are able to hold on the fond memories. Even though we sorrow, we sorrow not as those who have no hope. May God sustain you during your time of sorrow.

    Bob and Ginny Brookhart
