My thoughts and prayers go out to the Kalb family during this most difficult time. I was touched by reading your Dad's obituary and was impressed with his service to his country and the fulfilling life that he lived. He is now an angel on your shoulders as go forward in life. Cherish the memories.

I am not sure you all will remember me. George drove my school bus for years. We lived on Seiter Road not far from your farm. Beverly and I went to school together, not in the same grade but close. I will always have fond memories of your father/ husband greeting me every morning when I was getting on the bus. He was a very special man and will be missed. My deepest heartfelt sympathy go to all the family.

I often talked with you mom and dad at John Deere Night in Richwood.  I would often ask about you and your family.  You are one that I remember from kindergarten.  That was a while ago.  So sorry about the loss of your dad. Give my best to your mother too. You are all in our prayers.  Your kindergarten teacher Nancy Wiley
