Memories Timeline


  1. Val,

    My condolences on the passing of a great individual. I have many fond memories walking around the farm at 4-H events. Gale was always willing to assist when needed but his special skill was listening intently to what you had to say. It is a great loss of a great man! Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
