    Hard to believe but I just thought about Verle and Orville the other day. I worked with Verle at CUNA Mutual when I was expecting my first child. In fact I got The crib they used for their children. I remember how they would leave with their camper every Friday night after work and some back every Sunday to get ready for work on Monday. They were good people and I am sorry to know they both have passed. My sympathy to the family and God be with you.
