    Sorry to hear of your loss. Your loss is mine also she will be greatly missed. She is with your dad now and they are happy working together again. The Fickle friendship is losing a great person. May God be with you. May time heal. But the memories will always be there, the fair will not be the same without her and Dave. We had some great times growing up with them. Your mom is talking to dad about bus driving, she made a great one as dad said. A great mother and grandmother.

    We knew Virginia and Dave through the Clinton County 4-H Sheep Program. Our children (Brenda & Brian & Jeff Strong) were in the Sheep Program the same time Larry and Karen were. We always enjoyed their family and remember the good times we shared at the fair. Our condolences to all your family.

    Karen and family, I’m very sorry to hear of your loss. I’ve known your Mom for such a long time – also, she knew my Dad. And then we bought her Mom’s home in Jefferson – what a lovely lady. Not long ago I talked with her at Southfork – she was smiling and happy – I will miss her. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
