I polished the reflectors on his tank truck many times. He took me with him to St Louis Missouri to pick up a new trailer. I bought his horse Lady. May he be blest.

The Doug Graham family played a significant roll in our family and in my life at age 10-14. A diary entry in my Mom's diary "7/13/1947 Phil went to Pokagon SS with Thelma Graham. My Dad sold them an acre of land that they built on. I baby sat Niel and Perry while your folks took my folks to the Sonia Henny Ice Review in Chicago one time. Lou Ann our daughter was showing horses when Mary showed in the Cass County Bridle Club. And I remember the new Mack Truck with "Miss Marcia" painted on the front bumper. I bought your Dads hourse "Lady" and enjoyed riding her for many years. And my wife Joan's birthday is also 12/25. Blessings to all of you on the passing of your father.
