“Marc, Mary and Marsha, my sincere sympathy to you and your family. I have such fond memories of Velma and Don and feel so Blessed to have got to know them and you all while working at BHLCC. Your Dad would always make my day when he would stop by my office on his way to breakfast and dinner, just to talk about the weather, the crops, his farm! He was very proud of all of his family and his heritage and his time serving our country defending our freedom. Thank you Don Meyer for your service. Janine Waldrop”
