*Never cheat in cards . If you do, the game is over
*Never use the wrong words when speaking as you will be corrected
*Never leave Ruth and Lois unattended at the Lake with Tang
*Never let Ruth and Lois make a pull out bed when Glen has his tape recorder out
*When at Grampa and Gramma Vierkant’s in Sauk Rapids do not ask if you can go to town on Saturday night with your parents
*Never count on winning when playing double solitaire
Thanks for all the fun times — you will be missed

Sending love as we remember Grandma Vierkant!❤ She always had the most holiday pies at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners! Then we would play Yahtzee after the feast with the grandkids! At Peace, she now rests with God🙏
