Matt, I still remember when you all visited with us here in Maplewood Mn. I t was so special to actually meet you and we sat and had a little lunch. My last conversation with your dad centered around your Little girls. Your dad was so thrilled with them. He commented how He and Charlotte had become good buddies. That's what Grandpas are for! I will miss his calls ,we had great conversations. We both loved genealogy so you can imagine. how long those talks were. Know. that. he will be missed and. our Lord has promised we will all be together again. All our love , cousin Lolly and. her crew.
