Memories Timeline


  1. To my Uncle Duane: I had such a great time the last time I got to visit you in Iowa. I miss going Snipe hunting with you in the Cemetery by your house there. It saddened my heart to hear that you had passed. I only wish I had known so I could have been there. May you, Uncle Luther and Daddy behave for Grandma and Grandpa in heaven. I hope there isn’t a bug room there. Theresa (Rossow) Lusk
