Always enjoyed Fred's company. Fred and Patsy came to Vegas to visit me about 25 years ago and we had a lot of laughs. Wishing the Meier family the best in these difficult times.

Many fond memories of your dad, cousin Patsy and all of you kids from the time you were born. There were many dances we shared and always had a good time whenever your dad would call and say, "Hey, would you guys like to go out for a steak supper?" Also remember your dad and mine with their visits and when your dad drove his combine from your farm west of White Lake to our farm 16 miles south of Kimball to help him with harvest. Keep the good times close to your hearts as we will too. God blessāœ
