I’ve been learning a great deal from your book(s) and have enjoyed the reading. I laugh every time I look at the picture of Uncle Dick as a youth sitting on that horse. Your book not only keeps the family we know with us daily but also other family members we never knew. Words simply won’t be adequate to thank you for what you’ve given each member of the Whipple Family. Dan Drotzman, St. Michael, Minn. 3-4-08.
