Guest Book

Will miss the visits by Roy and his very best friend Phil Nelson. The first years I was here the "Boys" would walk from past my house down into Trafton along the Milk and end up at the museum.
They were very good at "offering" advice on my current yard project and offering encouragement when a project looked overwhelming.
Phil keep your great memories in your heart forever. A true friend is the greatest.
