Dear Uncle Rame! I will always remember those magical childhood years on Willow Road when all the cousins ran and played and celebrated, and knew our strong dads were always there. Uncle Rame always
Had a smile or hug and when he knew we could get “the joke”, would make plenty of them, and they never stopped. It was not until much later that I learned he was a brave soldier in World War ll . I loved him and will miss him.

Mr. and Mrs. Bushong brought the team at S. Clyde Weaver, Bird-in-Hand Farmers Market, a lot of laughs and entertainment throughout the past few years. Ray carried the coin purse! We send our sympathy to the family. Many of us will miss the joyful interactions. Praying for you all. Jim, for the team
