Herbert Degner and Hugh Barrett

Dave, with his brother and sister-in-law, Dan and Pat, took his father to visit his first cousin, Herbert Degner, in Freeport, IL on 27 Dec, 2008. Herb and Hugh were born 4 months apart in 1923 and saw each often as children. They have only visited each other 3 or 4 times in the last 60 years. Hugh enjoyed the visit and drive up and back immensely.
