  1. Thank you Jack Townsend for posting my father's obituary. The lack of comments/responses tells all one needs to know about the nature of the modern Federal Government and those that 'serve' it. 30 years of faithful service goes unnoticed. My father would not have been surprised.

  2. Hello my name is LaMonica McCain.
    Many years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Mr.Jim and Ms.Ruth while caring for his mother Mrs.Conrad. Every so often I find myself thinking of them and today was one of those days. I did a Google search and found this blog. I'm deeply sorry for the loss of your mother and father Jack and while it's been a few years you still have my deepest condolences. They were lovely people.
