I knew the Hufford family very well when I lived in Moline. My mother, Margaret Johnson, and Betty were very good friends. I worked with Dick at Williams, White. They were fine people. I knew the Otis and Thorngren families, too. God is great in giving us memories.

Hello Jean (aka Little Huff), What a blessing for you to have had your mother nearby the last couple of years. I wanted you to know that I care and that I'm praying for all your family. You may be interested to know that I have regular contact with some of our former friends from our camping days. Jayne McDermott (aka Giggles) and Carol Harshbarger (aka Miss Lynn) and Arline Bernsten Elliott (aka Rusty). If you are interested in knowing how to reach them, please contact me at The Dispatch newspaper in Moline where I have worked the last 40 years. Carol and Arline think we should have a camp reunion. Please take care and God Bless you. Sandee Luster (aka Snickers)

While we always grieve our loss, we can celebrate a life very well lived. Its been a long time since we were all one big family on the court, but I still remember Dick and Betty with fondness and admiration.
