Kay, Ken and Steve,

In June, my Red Hat group was returning from an outing in Hillsdale. Three of us stopped for ice cream at Pete's Eats in Pioneer. We had the BEST conversation with Mr. Kaiser, as we sat and ate our treats. I think he was there for an afternoon coffee, and to socialize. It is truly a small world, when you are talking to a stranger who has a connection to someone that you already three! As we left, he drove off in his ancient van with his faithful dog at his side. We were amazed that he was still driving at his age. It was a chance encounter, but it made a lasting memory for me.

May your faith sustain you in your sadness and loss.

Pearl Elder

Sorry to read of your dad's passing. He obviously lived a rich, full, and interesting life. His name came up when I stopped to pick up seed and twine at R.W. Oates in July. He along with Oakley Meyers, another 99 year old farmer from Waldron, who just passed on August 9th, apparently had worked for or done business with them when they were an Oliver dealer.
May God bless you and your family as you grieve from your loss.
Clyde & Ann

Dear Family, particularly the Donaldsons -
I noticed Mr. Kaiser's name in the news and thought it sounded familiar. I know he was known in my family but did not know he was your father, grandfather and great grandfather. Small world indeed. I am sorry to learn of your loss yet humbled by the long and admirable he lived on this earth. We give thanks for his life, his long hours working as a dedicated farmer and in manufacturing, and ask for God's blessings on your family during this time.
In sympathy,
Deedy & family
