Ken, Trudy and family: Sincerest sympathy upon the loss of your mother. She was a very special person and was especially proud of her family. She excelled at the most important job of all: raising a caring son and passing her love and life full of wisdom to her grandchildren. Carla Raper Springer PHS Class of 1966 Carla Raper Springer, June 13, 2011 Ken, You did a beautiful job, today, on your memorial for your Mother. I was not sure that I would recognize you because it has been so long since I last saw you. But, when you walked in the room, I immediately knew it was you. I was impressed that you remembered me and knew my name. Yes, we have many many memories of your Mother, your Grandfather and Grandmother in our earlier years. There was never a harder working family in this world. Your Uncle James is still holding to that tradition. Our prayers are with you and your family.
