Dear Donna, Carolyn and Linda,

I was so sorry to hear about Don's passing. As kids out at the Shoop farm, we always had a good time. You and your families are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Donna, Carolyn and Linda,
We are so sorry with Don's passing. As children, we played together often at Pappap John Shoop's farm. It seems that my Pappap Ben Shoop was usuallly around. We had a lot of fun. As we grew older we spent less time together. I remember Carl Shoop taking us for rides in his Model A Ford with a rumble seat. Don was a really good guy. He will be missed. God Bless, you are in our prayers.With our love. Ben and Rosalie
