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.
