  1. We send our love, dear cousins.
    I have many many wonderful memories of Bob…and “Rainie.” He gave me my first baseball bat–I still have it! And helped me ride my first horse in Polk City IA. The beautiful breadboard he gave us after a visit to Moberly is used often. And I know Chris and Jamie will never forget their first visit to meet their Colorado cousins (and the amazing “Soot”!) God bless you all….Carole, John, Chris & Jamie
