The Greatest Generation


Any reference to The Greatest Generation has always brought Uncle Neil to our minds. He was raised during the Great Depression. He was drafted into the US Army nine months before Pearl Harbor. He fought for our freedoms from North Africa to Berlin. He celebrated VE Day in Europe, was Honorably Discharged after VJ Day and married his sweetheart one month later. Together they raised five remarkable children and served as incredible role models to a host of nieces, nephews and grandchildren. Last year they celebrated their 71st Wedding Anniversary! Neil’s service to his family, his community, and his country deserves to be remembered. Today we honored this great and humble man who went to his eternal reward just four days before his 98th Birthday. Thank you, Uncle Neil! We will continue to tell your story.

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
