    Roger Schuelke and I were good friends as kids in grade school, junior high and I often drive by their old home on Kentucky traveling in Midland, TX. I had wondered whatever happened to the family. Mr. & Mrs. Schuelke were a fine couple and my deepest sympathy to Mrs. Louise Schuelke and the children Roger and Eloise.

    The finest brother-in-law ever. He loved egg custard pie and baseball! His carpentering was perfection. He was a family man all the way. We knew him when he came to church and fellow shipped with all. We send him on with faith and blessings. May his family and Louise rejoice in his memory.
