All Higgins cousins,
I am sorry to hear of the passing of your dad. I remember statying at your house in Stevens point ans sleeping in Patty's room. It was fun and your Dad seemd to smile a lot. I did not know he was in the service- miltary so many years. Thank you for his service. Your parents were always welcoming to us when we came to Stevens Point. They both always seemd like such genuinely nice giving people. They even came to my Wedding . Love from Jennifer krocahlk ( now Poppie). Praying for you
DC
