    Ken! Winnie and Archie were my rocks when I needed good friends! They kept our car safe when we were married in 1984 and looked after Shy Doggie. Dale & Archie had a long-standing friendship through Case farm equipment. Then Archie and Winnie were our stalwart friends and neighbors in Midland. We can only offer you our wonderful memories of your folks and we always wish you, the youngest kid, the best. We will always have Winnie in our hearts.
