Here ya go Erin, a litte bit of trivia, your pop and other uncles ought to have, our picture archive and somewhere, proabbly the square file there existed a box of letters to Verle from her husband - only Gram and I thought much of our history. I fell out of touch you can copy these pages. {My Creed My Comfort}

Oct 15 7: AM
Lord make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury; pardon;
Where there is doubt; faith
Where there is despair; hope;
Where there is darkness; light and
Where there is sadness; joy
O divine master
Grand that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love, for it is giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; And it is in dying that we are reborn to eternal life
St. Francis of Assisi
