Dear Jeannie and Randy,
I was checking Dad's obituary when I came across Punches'. We are so sorry for your loss. Dad and Punch were the best of friends, I think Dad even helped him build his house. Haven't seen him for years, but thought of him and the fun he and Dad had together. Guess they are in heaven now talking over old stories.
So sorry, he was a wonderful person,
Linda Fogle Clutter
