Love and prayers to all, I remember a stockcar in the back yard. Playing tag with the kids, a trip to a diner. The time you came to visit in the motor home at Frankfort. His smile always seem to say hello. Mom'last road trip was going to see everyone when you got to Indiana. Mel last drive they'll all be waiting. Love, -Jeri Holliger Kieninger
