So sorry about the passing of Kenny. Met you two at the American Restaurant in the late 70's. Don & I would be there every evening along with you & Kenny and we would play PacMan & Donkey Kong. What a great time we would have. Don has been gone for over 12 yrs but I have some great memories & this is one of them. My heart goes out to you.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I have such good memories of the times Mom (Ruth Grosjean) and I would visit with "the Bapst boys". It was one of our required stops on the way to our booth.

Saying a prayer for you Lanita and your family. I mainly was able to see you when we all worked the Bob Evans Farm Festival together. You and your husband were appreciated by many.

It is so difficult to lose a loved one, no matter their age or how long it has been since last seen or talked with. A MOTHER is to me the most difficult of all to lose. I have lost two brothers to death, and neither were easy. But knowing they are with GOD is such a blessing. Knowing you, Joyce, you have the same blessings from GOD. May HIS peace abound within your family. Just lean upon his promises
