  11. Our condolences to your family Joyce. Always loved visits with Eric. He usually left you with something to think about. When we were kids though and we visited Walt and Mary’s farm, he loved to taunt Marg and I with an old billy goat. The goat was probably a sweetie but we never stayed around long enough to find out.
    Love to you and your family at this time.

  12. Sure miss having coffee with you at Red Star coffee shop .
