When I was a kid 8-9-10; Dad and Mom would occasionally visit the farm. Dad would go with Uncle Tony and Mom and Aunt Jo would visit in the house. Aunt Jo showed me how she processed the milk on the separator. She always made home made bread and jelly would get a slice with jelly for me. Loved going down to the spring where the butter and milk was kept. She was always a cheerful, considerate lady. God bless her.

Mrs. Voss was a great person! She used to come into dollar general often when we were next door to her house. She always had a smile on her face. She will be missed
