  4. Curt Hensley says:

    My name is Curt Hensley. I remember as a kid in the early 1960″s playing with my good friends Ken Longwell and Jeff Flanders. We spent some time at the Longwells just messing around. One year Ken’s dad built an ice skating rink in the backyard and we had quite a bit of fun. Not sure how Mr. Longwell pulled that off. I do remember that he was so nice and friendly to me when I did go to the Longwell house. Mrs. Longwell was also special to me as well and I have never forgotten that. I would like to say to Ken and Carolyn and Mrs. Longwell even though it has been close to 60 years since I have seen you that you have my sincere sympathies.
