Dear Aunt Carol, David, Paul Mark, Julie and your families;
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of uncle Norman. I have very fond memories of playing cribbage with him at Grandma Dux’s house when we would gather for Christmas Day evening get togethers. He was always interesting to listen to because as a teacher he made everything educational in a fun way. He will be missed but hopefully the memories (and pictures) you have will bring back the many happy and fun times you spent together. Great-Great Grandparents Ferdinand & Charlotta, Great Grandparents William & Bertha, and Grandparents Albert & Alma can be very proud of the accomplishments of Everett, Melvin, Norman, and Irene. These children all started their lives on the family farm in the Town of Pine Valley and in my book lived long and successful lives. I am proud to carry on the Dux name in their honor. Lawrence (Larry) Dux
