My condolences to the family. When I was a little kid, we used to visit Mike and family on the Ulysses farm. I was quite young but still remember the kind spirit of the family, and enjoyed listening to everyone's conversations. I had fun playing in the out buildings with the girls. Steve was older and he and my brother Martin enjoyed their own adventures. You just don't forget a loving environment, even though the memories are fading. I'm sure the Lord was with you every day.

The one thing I remember as clear as if it was yesterday was the huge cardboard roll of matches on one of the living room tables. I was kind of a pyromaniac as you can imagine any male four of five year old would be, but I was well taught not to play with matches unless I had supervision. I'm sure I must have bugged poor Joan about them all the time we were there. I'll never forget you guys and gals, and I hope Jesus can heal the wounds of missing our parents. Love you all - Fred Neff

My best memories of Joan was how remarkably full of life she was -- a real live wire, a kick!

From my personal experience I appreciate the hole left inside after a significant death.

My sympathies to surviving family -- Steve, Carol, Karen, and your respective families.

--Mike Rudnick
