  1. Tim and Don Kuelper

    Royal and I helped Tim and Sue move the home and the kennels from Loves Park to Roscoe during the recession of 1980. Marion and Sue kept the pizza and beer flowing while Josh and Erica played in the big yard. I always wanted to visit Harlengen Texas but didn't make that far south. My and my Dad's regards to the family

    My Mother was the best mom a daughter could dream of. She was a wonderful grandmother to my children as well. So loving and caring. Listened and guided me through growing up, and we became best friends. I was so fortunate to have the BEST of the BEST! I love you Mom, and I know you are in a better place! You will be in my heart forever! Suzie
