Good Morning Russ,
A cool day in Iowa, but lots of sunshine, and may get up to 50.
Sad news this am:
Jerry Frank 613 E Elm St., Algona, Iowa 50511 passed away this am in Hospice care. He was on board the BG 60-62 with Les, John Ellis, Kent Wager, Dexter. and many others. Please post this on USS Belle Grove LSD 2 website for me. Les had talked to him about a week ago, and he told Les, I'm hoping to make it to Christmas. He and his wife Agnes had come to several reunions.

And I just lost my oldest brother Thanksgiving day. He was in the nursing home, and they had moved him to Hospice care on Tuesday of this week. He had been up here in Des Moines for 3 weeks. Had blood cancer, also cirrhosis of the liver, and many other issues. His services are Monday. Just been a tough time for all of us, perhaps you have seen it on my facebook.

Other than that we are hanging in there. Did have Turkey day here with daughter and family and our son. Was a good day, and we definitely needed a good day.

Les goes back to VA the 12th for all kinds of tests. They are constantly changing his meds. He is once again losing weight, has no strength or energy. Try to get him to eat, but it is like pulling teeth.

Take care.
Love,
Les and Janet

I received a call from Louise Sawyer's daughter last Friday to let me know that Louise will be celebrating her 80th birthday on October 4. She was surprised with a birthday party this past Saturday. If you would like to send Louise a card or call her, her mailing telephone number is:

12 Hillstead Rd
Claremont, NH 03743
(603) 542 6864

If you remember, Louise was a companion to Wallace Hentschel (Archie) and attended many reunions along with Archie and after his passing.

Hello friends,
Received this message from family of Becky Chakov. A Memorial Celebration will be held October 10, 2016 at 1:30 pm at Neilson Place for Elaine R. "Becky" Chakov. Bemidji, MN. Becky passed away July 26th at Neilson Place, where she had been recovering from a fracture.
We hope you can join us. If you are not able to attend, but perhaps have a story, poem or any sentiment to share, we will be happy to read it for you. You can send to kbedwards@comcast.net before October 10.

Becky and her husband Jake (Little Jake) attended many reunions with all of us, and we looked forward to seeing them at the reunions. They met as the story goes on a ferry, and it was love from there on, and marriage.

All is well in Iowa, we are enjoying the cooler weather and the fall. Not looking forward to all the leaves, but love our trees so something we just have to put up with. Les is doing fair, some days are good others not so good. Humidity is his downfall, takes the zing right out of him.

All take care, and see you in July in Texas.

Les and Janet
