Over eighty years ago, we moved to a farm in the Columbia community in Wapello County. The Mayo family were our closest neighbors. They were such good neighbors! Calvin and his Dad were quiet men and didn't say much. Malcom and Beth were more verbal. They kept in contact with our family most of their lives.

I will always treasure the visits to the farm growing up. Uncle Calvin delighted in gentle teasing about my being a "city kid" and challenged me to take part in many of the farm chores. He was quiet but always observant; a man of few words but often the few were very humorous. I remember riding the John Deere tractors and playing with the many tractor models, wearing the many JD hats and helping with jigsaw puzzles. Aunt Gladys and Uncle Calvin and I often went for countryside car rides; it seemed it was always raining and I was always getting in mud to the top of my boots much to his dismay. Fun times. Wonderful memories. Rest in peace Uncle Calvin.
