    I’m so glad Moe called me just a few weeks ago. We had a pleasant conversation and he sounded sort of up beat but maybe he knew things were winding down. He was one of my dad’s favorites and I gathered that the feeling was reciprocated. He always invited me to stop to visit when in Greenville but I never made it–and probably I’ll not be in Greenville again. Moe was a good friend and just about the only male classmate who stayed in Greenville and maintained contact with me. Our ranks get thinner. Who will be next?

    Please accept my warm wishes, sympathy and support. —Carter

    I am so glad I took my mother, Rosemary Straub, to Perkins in Greenville, just a couple weeks ago to have lunch with some Ole friends, Leland and Geri Dick, Sally Smith, and Pat Smock. Moe came over to our table to speak to Mom. She was very excited, it had been decades since they had seen each other. Moe was the best man in my parents wedding, Charles and Rosemary Straub, in Warren, OH, on Feb. 19, 1955. My Dad passed on March 24, 1994. We would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family.

    Geri and family,
    I just learned of Moe’s passing. I always enjoyed talking with him over the years. He was a good man and a good friend. My sympathy to all.

    Joan and Dallas Wentling Dallas always enjoyed Moe, but I only got to know him when Gerry was our great church organist. He was such a friendly guy as well. I appreciated his sharpening skills for our garden tools too.
    Special thoughts to John and his siblings and their families.
