    Rich, "Richie", I am so very sorry. I visited your father a few years ago when I was in Maquoketa. It was so good to see him. It's been 10yrs since mom (Bev) died, and dad (Wayne) died the end of March this year. It's the end of an era now that our parents are gone. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Tracey Haylock. You can reach me through Betty Miller in Maquoketa.
