Dear Derold, Mike ,
We are so sorry to hear of the death of Gregory. We knew all the Husby’s from 1958 on as lived across the street for years. Played golf with all you at Portland and watched Greg and Mike grow up, we were back and forth in each ones houses a lot. So many memories, called our kids Tim, Randy and Jo Ann so shocked. We just can’t lose track of each other, will give you a call soon Derold. God Bless you all and remember that “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46: 1
