  3. Memories of Uncle Roy: he let me drive his John Deer(the 1st motor vehicle I drove): the many projects Uncle Roy and my Dad did together: cutting firewood, pouring concrete for garage & dairy barn, laying blocks, digging well, electrical, plumbing, hair cuts, overhauling cars & other things, field work, etc. All the while teaching their oldest boys how to use tools ,how to work together, how to be proud of what you did, and how to help others when they need help. Uncle Roy and Uncle Elmer E. had a special relationship, and all us kids benefited from that. I am praying with & for our extended families! Junior Enns

    • First off-very sorry for the delay in answering, I wasn’t following the “newer” technology. Great to hear from you as the memories you related run deep and meaningful. The waffles and get-togethers every two weeks for haircuts were a great time as I remember it Uncle Elmer kept track of whose turn it was to host the event. My experiences in Goessel go full circle as I learned many things at Uncle Elmer Enns’s
      and in Goessel is where my parents, and mom still does, lived until Dad died. Memories of your Dad and when he met his reward are still very vivid in my mind. What a great heritage we have!! Good to here from you, Junior and God Bless
      Gerald
