    I remember Claude helping out at our farm during haying season and often chatting with my grandfather on Sundays after church. A kind, quiet man, as my grandfather was. My condolences to you, Ineus, and to your family, at this difficult time.

    I am sorry to hear about your dad. When both of my parents were alive your dad was a regular visitor and even after they died he stopped by to see me a few times. You can be very proud of him and he will be missed. Hugs to the family. Condolences
