Don Sutherland, our club newsletter editor, found this little story about your Mom & Dad. In June of 2019, they attended our Central Oklahoma Chapter of the Studebaker drivers Club picnic in Oklahoma City.  Don, who had visited with your Dad, reminded me that I had met your folks at that picnic, in fact I took this photo of them…

“Peter, I found this shot of Theresa and Richard in the Jul-Aug 2019 issue of "The Stude Flyer"   ….

 

Richard and Marie Nelson Plan A Trip

Only recently returned from a Florida trip, Richard and Marie so enjoyed the 3500 miles they drove they are contemplating a trip back to the Bahamas, maybe not driving this time. On the Florida trip they made six stops, visiting grandkids, a brother and a sister and a son. Their Grand daughter-in-law has expressed a desire to “meet the family” , so they are thinking perhaps Christmas would be a good time to make such a visit. Maybe Richard could finish the Hawk and drive it….

 

Well, at any rate,  Bon voyage!”.
