Bernard E. a Berniea Bruder
#1 Feb 15, 2013
Our families come from two sisters(Bernie's Mother Reta Bruder and my Mother, Martha Chilson). We have been close for our entire lives.
Bernard is the last of his generation but I have a Sister, Mildred living in Oregon. I notified her this morning when Rick notified me of Bernie's passing. Needless to say we are saddened to hear the news but we have memories that will last us a lifetime. Mildred told me one this morning - she remembers seeing Tom Mix during a visit to Prophetstown with the Bruder family during a visit in the 1930's. We all remember the picnics we had visiting the farm during the summers.
I remember, in 1944 while visiting the Bruders, riding with Bernie in a Dodge Coupe riding on the rails of the railroad that went from Tampico to ?(don't remember). Precious memories.
