Cousin Don:

You were more like a big brother.

Vivid memories of growing up near Bergan. After Our last conversartion I had a flash back to the days of thrashing.
I remember you and Lindy picking up bundles from the field and feed the machine. Backbreaking, hot work.

I remember your good times with Donna and it reminded me of the poem by Wordsworth, SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS.
.....Nothing can bring back the hour
Of Splendor in the Grass
Of glory in the flower,
We will grieve not rather find
Strength in what remains behind; ....

God speed on your spiritual journey!!!
