I was right the first time. I’m so confused and I’m very sorry. I apologize. Please delete previous message. Uncle Otto it is.

Need to correct memory on Laurence’s dad!!!! It was uncle Ed!!!! I’ve been going through the family’s and trying to place children and parents. I have many to connect with. I’m so sorry. 😢

We knew Laurence from the jams at Otho and Dows. He was a kind, sweet man. I always enjoyed visiting with him about horses! In the early 70's he bought a horse named Ace from my father in law. Thinking of your family and what a blessing he must have been to you all.

I would also like to share that mom was a sister of his dad Uncle Otto. This whole family lived a long life of caring and doing so much with family and friends. Along with knowing they came to this country from Germany needling to learn so much while having fun doing this. So many times the children of this generation have not learned of all they went through to enjoy life in America. I’m hoping they will research to learn all of their ancestry.

Im thinking of you all in the loss of your dad who lived an amazingly long life. I am the remaining member of the Walter and Olga Telschaw family. Treasure memories. Janice Telschaw Kloss. God’s blessings 🙏

I'm sorry to hear of Laurence's death, but I'm glad to see he lived a long, meaningful, horse-filled life. His mother, Lena, was the sister of my grandmother, Laura. I passed his farm thousands of times in my childhood and young adulthood en route to St. John's or Fort Dodge. I last spoke with him at my mother's funeral visitation several years ago and was intrigued by the horse stories he shared. I'm glad I had a chance to speak with him about his love for those wonderful creatures. My condolences to Janet, Larry, Lane and their families.
