To my Dear Friends,
     My heart goes out to you in your Mother’s passing. She was a wonderful woman. I have many fond memories of her growing up. She’s now with Paul sitting on a glider, salt shaker in one hand, knife in another, slicing apples to eat, while they rest under the shade tree.

Fond memories are had because of
reunions and family "get togethers" in the past.  The recent years have taken ahold of us.  Dave is now 79 and has many health problems that keep us driving back and forth between Columbus and Polk for doctors and procedures.  We've been going every week for 2-3 days each week since August-September. He had a 10 hour surgery at the end of June to remove his bladder, vas deferns,
remaining prostate and lymph nodes in his mid section with robotics. Followu p has involved lots more procedures.  19 years of prostate treatments has kept us busy.
God bless your family. Dave & Marilyn Badger
