Dick and Lucille were our neighbors across the hills and pasture along the river. I remember our families getting together for birthdays, and New Years Eve, when we would have oyster stew. The adults played a lot of cards, Hearts. I remember one time I even got to play with them. I remember picking strawberries in Lucilles big strawberry patch. I remember being at Lucilles house the night the Beatles were on TV for the first time. The Roesners were good neighbors! I played a lot of dolls with Carmen and Diane sewed doll clothes for me! My sympathy to the family in the loss of your Mom.

I had not seen Dick & Lucille for many years but I do remember all the fun times that were had. As mentioned family gatherings where Lucille brought many goodies and Fox Lake for Alvin & Roberta anniversary. Boy could Dick & Lucille dance and have a good time. Good times will be remembered.

I don't have a clear 'first' memory of Grandma, she just always WAS. I spent every weekend on the farm from birth until I was just entering my teens. So many beautiful memories...the way her bathroom smelled of 'Prell' shampoo, how she "worshed" and "anaways", the homemade Easter shawl and baskets, and being woke up early Christmas and Easter mornings to her playing the organ and heading off to church. Love you Grandma!
