Your family & ours were intermixed on many occasions when you boys were young. Marcia & I not only baby sat for you ,but camped together in our much younger years. Our parents were great friends and enjoyed many happy times together. It meant so much for me to hear Buzz tell Maggie that Mom was her best friend. I know they are enjoying some great quality time reminiscing about the old days right now. Bob was an awesome & integral part of the family & community as well. I was nice to see all 3 of you boys again. I pray that you'll all do well during the healing time. Sincerely, Rhonda Wagoner
