I have wonderful memories sharing Christmas times at Aunt Terry and Uncle Win’s home, with her bubble lights wrapped around the stairs. Thank you for being a part of my childhood and making the holidays extra special.

good times at Elliott High School. Classmate of both Court Braden and Win. Win and I both joined the Navy about the same time. We met up in Japan for a good visit. Also was at the 60th class reunion in Elliott. I remember sending Win a book about the CBs. Dan and Carl were both in WW 2 as CBs. Win was pleased to get the book.

Win and I grew up together and had lots of great times on the farm and in high school. We even “plugged” all the watermelons in Uncle Ray’s garden looking for a ripe one. What we got was a licking! Good times growing up. Win went to the Navy and I went to the Air Force and we never met again until our 60th class reunion in Elliott, Iowa. May the Lord bless you and your fond memories of your dad.
