Dear Mike,

Thanks for the info. I printed the e-mail off and left it at work yesterday. But, I know that Daddy can answer some of your questions.

After doing some research I found that Bert Cassles in Tx. He and Daddy talked with each other on Sat. It really made Daddy's day!

On Ancestry.com I've been able to determine that Earnest R. Loomis died 20 Aug 2004 and buried at the Shaddy Cemetery in Grovespring,Mo.

James H. Wood died 13 Oct. 2005 in KY, Everett R. Kennedy died 7 Dec. 1985 in CN, Michael G. Hudak died 5 Aug 1993 in PA, Kurwin F Dech

died 1 Nov. 1970 in a car wreck in PA ( Daddy recieved a letter from his wife when this occurred). I hope that this helps you a little in your

quest for the info on our brave airmen from the 100 Bomb group.

I'll keep in touch when I've got more info for you.

Thanks again!

LeAnn Myers
