Steve and Diane et al, Your Mom and Dad were some of the first people who welcomed us to Clayton (also employed me at Montgomery Ward for a short time) and we enjoyed their zest for life! Your Mom attempted to teach me knitting, we enjoyed many meals, boating etc in our early years when you were kids. Such fond memories of them and Audrey was always smiling, great sense of humor-she will be missed by so many!

Diane and Steve, Your Mom always greeted me with a smile. Whether at your house, the MW store, and especially at TI HS when she ran the office and I was a substitute teacher. Hope to see you this summer. Terry Baker
