Memories

Tudy was a great woman, who I will never forget. She was one of the people in my life, who probably had no idea how she touched my life. I would visit her farm at times growing up with the Dave and Sue Degen family and I never met a woman who worked so hard with remarkable ethics and values. I recall respecting Tudy because she earned it and also recall being introduced to discipline if I didn't make good choices. God Bless...........
