I'll never forget the times we spent at Gram and Gramp Blessing's farm; rolling down the hill above their root cellar on our sides. Or the rides on Gramp's tractor. And all those Sunday dinners there with the family. Good memories are what I'm using to help with the sadness of losing you. God Speed, Wayne. Happy your struggles are over.

T Todd Brian Speicher on Aug 18, 2021
