Dear cousins,What amazing memories I have of your Mom and Dad. Some of my fondest memories of my childhood visiting my grandparents farm were of my grandparents, parents and Aunt Virgina and Uncle Troy getting together and playing cards, going out dancing, and telling jokes. There was always laughter when Aunt Virginia and Uncle Troy were around. The Doetch family reunions that your mom would so graciously host at your farm were so much fun. Your mom was so loving of family...she was there for me at our grandmas funeral when our mom has passed the day after and said she would be our grandma and mother if we needed it. What a great legacy your parents leave! My thoughts are with all of you!! Wish we could be there to share our love and the fond memories. Love, Cousin Angie
