To the Endres family, I have good memories of Nick & Karen from my aggie days, they came into Jack's Farm Supply for various
feeds etc., have a cuppa coffee, chat a bit, then back to the farm & family. Nick was very proud of family, & farming, he had a big, heart, & a good hearty laugh. May he rest in heaven's peace & joy.
God bless you with comfort & strength in this time of grief.
