Every summer your family would come to Iowa and visit. Your mother and father brought me a doll that I named Charlotte, when I was about four years old. I still have her, but she needs something to hold her together. Miriam Miriam Rose Rogness, June 8, 2007 He was a prince of a man even though I only knew him a very short period of time.
