    My dear cousin, You will be forever in my memory. I am also sad that we have not gotten together for a long time. Your Father, Irvin, and my Dad, Elmer, were the closest of brothers. I remember so many family holiday dinners with you, your Dad, Mother and Brother. I have been corresponding with your Son and enjoying researching our Groth family ancestry with him. God Bless you and your Family. I know that you are surely missed. With Love, Kathleen L Groth Woodward
