Ed and family,

You have my most sincere condolences on the loss of your father. I knew he must have been seriously ill as I saw you had to have health services come in to help take care of him. I also saw the ER leave with him the night you had called them.

He, as well as, yourself have been great neighbors. I will always remember his generosity and the awesome raspberries that he had a few years back.

Again, I am sorry for your loss.

Nancy your neighbor

Sorry to hear about the passing of your father. He was well liked by all who met him and his early influence on the staff of the MCDC make it the success that is today. Your father “Bear” was truly one of a kind.

Very sorry to hear about the passing of you father. You were very dedicated to him in his last days and I am sure he was happy to have his loving son at his side.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

I am our gravy’s family genealogist. My great grandfather F. W.

McElravy, Ohio 52nd Infantry Civil War who married Louisa Dickerson daughter of Isaac Dickerson and Sarah Barricklow. She is thought to have been married in West Liberty, Iowa, in her father’s home. Do you have any ancestry charted for them? I have a nice portrait picture of Isaac and Daughter Louisa, but not of Isaac’s wife, Sarah. Isaac was born and died in Illinois. Isaac and Sarah were my mother’s great grandparents.

Sorry for your loss of late of Robert Lee Barricklow.. Bob was born in

I used to love to sit on the back porch with Bob and talk. Several times, I brought Mom with me. We always loved Bob. He was very pleasant and could always make you laugh. I would always watch for him. Several years passed and I no longer saw him during the summer months sitting on his chair. My condolences to Edward and Family. He was a truly a gentleman in every aspect. He will be greatly missed and often thought about!
