    So sorry to hear about the passing of your loved one. I believe I spoke with Larry on the phone about some remodeling to be done on my house. I believe Leonard was my father's uncle. August was my grandfather and my dad was Walter. My Uncle Ervin passed away in Feb of this year. Now no Stelters left except my brother Jerry. Again so sorry to hear.
