    Some of my favorite memories are with Barb & Tom. Sharing recipes, golfing, & sitting around a bon fire. My heart goes out to you Scott & Cara.

    Barb was a childhood friend, neighbor and classmate that lived just across our pasture to her house. I can’t count the number of trips we made back and forth that pasture to each others house to play over the those young years. Then classmate through high school where we went on with our lives. Barb and Tom ended moving back to that property that was across from our pasture many years later and made it into a beautiful place for her and Tom to live until Tom’s death and now Barbs final trip home to the Lord. I will miss the parties that they had over the years and the occasional stop and visit when she was at home, I almost stopped just a few months ago during harvest but did not to busy I guess. Now driving by that place will not be the same but I will always cherish those memories over the last 65 plus years. Well done my old friend see you soon.
