You probably will not remember me, but I was on the Galva school bus with you and Betsy. I have recently re-acquainted with Joyce Noble..........she forwarded me your sad news. My condolences to you and yours. If my husband would have lived, we would have been married 66 years this March. He passed away 17 years ago. I live with my two dogs and myself here in Lincoln. The gas station where our school bus would stop on occasion, the manager that owned the station became my grandfather-in-law. I see Geraldine Dankert will be your organist...........she was my husband's cousin. Small world........
