  2. Dear Angie,
    This is Gail Everhart Bauer. I saw your dad’s obit and wanted to send you my sympathy for your loss. My dad passed almost 20 years ago and some days it feels like yesterday. May your good memories give you peace. Take care.

  3. Angie and boys, this news saddened me as I remember all the good times at our old 4H meetings. However, I even remember your dad more as a friend that I frequently saw over the years. My condolences to you and may your days ahead be held with the best memories. He was a great man.
