Sadness in the family this day. Condolences to all. May family, friends, & faith sustain you during this difficult time. Memories are with you forever; Personally, my friendship & memory probably go back 75 years as our Dad, moved his cattle to the Poff ranch after we moved to Fairview in 1942; later I would accompany Dad to visit Wilma, Bing & Lee. Oh my, precious thoughts of a dear friend & classmate. Clay Cummins
