Our families were friends many years ago. As a city kid the visits to the farm were always fun for me. My Mother, Viola Arndt Maisch, went to Johnstown High School with Francis and Dad, Harold, always had a lot to talk about and see with Elmer. Dad passed in 2001 and Mom is in memory care. Time passes us by but our memories are what is left and they are a gift to us all.
We send our warmest thoughts and sympathy to the Rutt Families,
Viola Arndt Maisch
