When we lived in New York when I was little, he was on the wrestling team.

Marjorie Baumberger talked to Mary Schnegg, her sister-in-law, who has moved to Tennessee. Mary and Jim are now living in Monroe County, Tennessee near their daughter and grandson, Dr. Laura Schnegg and son Rhett.

Celebrating the Easter holiday was a bit different for everyone this year. Usually, I spend time with my church family as well as my personal family.
