Dear Edie, Cindy, and Bill. The things I cherish the most, was going to your parents house. I was always welcomed with open arms. The always wonderful food and good conversations around the kitchen table. Your dad ( Tom) taking us to his farm to ride the horse. Your dad always soft spoken and patient with everyone including the 🐎. The pride he took in his cows and the land God had entrusted him to take care of. My prayers are with you all. To Edie, I love you and ask God to have a special place in his heart for you in the coming days. Love, Leslie
