    I will never forget the time we played Bonnie & Clyde in the car that had no doors & no top. How you drove me, Todd Jenkins & my sister Kathy, across the road from Gene Wike’s home. I love this memory of all of us!
    We were kids, young & free, loving the outdoors. Nature was our best friend!
    Your cousin,
