Personal Notes:
I personally want to thank Sharon (Cook) Wheeldon for bringing this together for our family. This is a treasured keepsake that we'll all be able to hand down to many generations to come. Just as our families before us gave a great heritage to us, let us try to live up to those standards. My REAL recipe for all is that if you don't know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior that you come to know him before it is to late. If you know him on this side of glory, we'll see you in eternity "On That Glad Reunion Day"!!!
Ray and his family
