Hard to replace all the memories we had growing up upstate and Millersville, camping with the kids at Knoebles, and fishing at  Uncle Al and Aunt Mary’s. The hunts for small game, when you got your limit after two fields, and deer hunts, who can ever replace. Your lively sense of humor and always having a solution to fix anything will be sorely missed. You were always the consummate storyteller. You will always be in our hearts and thoughts. Our prayers, comfort, and love go to Gloria and the family. Blaine & Caroll
