Sleighers snowmobile club on his farm, trips Merlin and I took with Patsy and Gordon, the times Gordon came with Patsy to EPAC conventions, where He would enjoy the white water rafting and the happy hours, We farmed across the road from each other south of Nashua, and the Reimches were good neighbors.
