I'm so very sorry to hear about the loss of my cousin, John.  When I first to Taylorville, at age 4, John, Don, and I walked to the Fair Grounds.  When we returned, their mom (my aunt Nellie) really gave us heck.  I'll always have that, and many more memories of John.  I as at the wedding when he married Judy.  They were such a sweet couple.

Blessing to the family.

(Note:  I'll be in Taylorville Wednesday 10/21/15 for 2 days only.  Hopefully, I can hook up with my relatives.)
