I met Everett through his daughter ~ Sharon. I didn't get to know him very well but would hear about him from Sharon. Sharon took good care of her parents and spent time with them. I am sorry for your lost but we all know that Everett is in a better place with his Lord. The Lord's blessing to all of Everett's family.
For quite a few years Everett and Mary lived across the street from my Mother Rose Jacobson. They were very good neighbors to her My husband Bob enjoyed going across a visitng with Everett. I am sorry for your loss Mary. I think of you often.
We may have not known each other as well as I wished we could of being so far away. My memories of watching twins games in the sunroom, is some that still remember and led me to be a twins fan. You will be missed grandpa. I wish I could be there.
