I am Sterling Hanks, a cousin about 4 years older than Steve. I grew up next door to our grandparents in Tooele. I remember the good times we had together with all the cousins at our grandparents place. Picking apples, having grandma then cook us apple turnovers, playing with grandpa's rabbits, climbing on his chicken coop which was a no no. climbing out the upstairs window out on to the back porch. Racing up and down the driveway in Aunt Jo's old baby buggy. Those were fun times always to be fondly remembered. Best wishes and God bless to all of your family Steve. Till we meet again
Cousin Sterling
