Ivan and I were married November 17, 1950 and have lived on the same farm where he was born and raised. Life has been good to us through the years with relatively good health until five years ago when he had colon cancer surgery. In  November, 2003  he had a section of his lung removed. He was cancer free for another year but passed away January 22, 2004 from chronic heart failure and emphysema. He is greatly missed... gone from our daily lives but certainly  not forgotten. We lost a son Richard, (the next to the youngest) at age 19 in a trucking accident involving a drunk driver. The Lord has graciously seen us through our sorrow and we look forward to a reunion with him someday. Our nephew Steven & wife Peggy manage the farm in a very capable manner. We raise around 2,000 acres of corn and some wheat. Our crops have been very good this year as we have received quite a few beneficial rains. We daily praise the Lord for His faithfulness to us! 2008 update: I spent 8 months away from home last year. I was in Texas for 3 months, then Tennesse for 3 months. I came home in May but went back to Texas for Marilyn's surgery in July for a month. Then I went to Tennessee to be with Carole for her foot surgery for 2 months. I did manage to get over to the lake and spend time in my 5th wheel trailer.
