may 7 we received a call from Ashleys mom to ask if we could go with her, to get her after school. Her dad has turned custody of Ashley to her mom. We had the opportunity for her to spend a few days with us, during the transition. She is very happy with the move and officially started living with mom last night . It has been great seeing her again ! In the morning she sings along with her Iphone and enjoys pancakes !
Mom said the reason her grandfather came was because he was afraid the Kaiser was going to start war and he did not want any part of it. Some of his children remained in Germany, he brought Grandma who was a young girl and his 2nd wife. He did truck farming near Peoria; joined the Apostolic Christian church after meeting a neighbor who belonged to it. "Gussie" never belonged to it, she was a Baptist. Grandfather Schultz was a Methodist; always wondered why he did not attend church where she did. When your Mom gave me the Masonic ring that Dad had, my question was answered. When I had the ring cleaned, etched on the inside was Grandfather Schultz' name. Baptists do not allow Masons to belong to their church, and grandfather apparently did not want to give up being a Mason.
