Lots of fond memories of visits to the farm with Aunt Mary and Uncle Charlie & Pa. Feeding the farm animals (especially lots of cats), riding on the wagon during hay season, helping Uncle Charlie in the garage, watching Pa & Uncle Charlie milking the cows and laughing when they sprayed some milk on the faces of cats close by, visiting Uncle Tom next door, taking turns pumping water from the well, helping Aunt Mary in the kitchen with baking (loved her big panty room), listening to the sound of the big grandfather clock in the den, eating hard boiled eggs out of the cutest egg cups in the world, watching the movie Ben Hur for the first time, putting together puzzles with Aunt Mary and trying to see how fast we could do so....Aunt Mary you will be missed! Special thoughts and prayers for the rest of the family at this time.
All our love, Fred, Rosemarie Tanner(nee Ecker - daughter of John & Marjorie) and family.
