  1. Tim,

    So sorry to hear about your dad – he was a great man. I will never forget the time I spent on the farm with you guys. You dad castrating bulls with a rusty knife then throwing the testicles to the cats to eat them, the look on Latonia’s face, the crazy collection of chickens, the bison, and of course that dog. I will never forget the ‘coat hanger’ contraption that your dad welded that the dog dragged around underneath him to provent him from running after any of the other animals. Everwhere we went that day we would hear the dog dragging that thing around - but it worked, and everytime he tried to run it would slow him down. Don’t know that PETA would have approved.


    1. Thanks for the memories, Brent. I can remember that visit... I think dad liked to keep a few operations like that in the bank for special visitors.

  2. So sorry to hear this. My thoughts are with you.

  3. Thanks Janet. Lori and I were able to see him the week before he passed, which I'm glad about.
