Thank you for planning the memorial written in CEdar Rapids newspaper,2016 for my uncle. I was only six years old when he was shot. But. Ido remember hearing about it. I want to contribute to the memorial fund and I would like a book when they are available. Arlene Comon, P.O. box 970, Prescott. Az.,86302.
