Dave, Tonya, and Family…
I was very sad to hear of your loss. You are in my prayers..
John, David, Don and Families. Our prayers are with you all in this trying time. But have peace in knowing that Uncle Jack and Aunt Betty are together again in heaven. Everytime I get on my John Deere tractor I will think of Uncle Jack. Also remember the good times we had at the family picnics and how much he enjoyed doing those auctions.
Love Steve and Sharon.
