  3. I was real sorry to hear about our cousin Barbara. Barbara always loved to come and spend time on our farm in Wheaton, Ks. She and my sister also loved to push rotten eggs thru a knot hole in the hay loft to land on me standing down below wanting to come and play with them. I was 5 years younger. She was such a kind loving person. I am so glad she came back to Kansas for our family reunion about six years ago. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. Cousin Shirley
