Thank you for sharing that with me, that was so sweet.That is really nice that your family kept him alive with their memories of him, and to have a chalk drawing of him wow, that is special.
You know it is people like you that help me continue to search for my family in Iowa. I'm not having very much sucess at all, so I post these pieces for everyone to help them along hopefully in their research.
Thank you for sharing, it touched my heart.
I've posted some other things on Epperly from the same area if you have not looked at them yet.
