18: Dear Annie, Here is a small record of your Irish heritage – on your mother’s side. In 1848 your great-great-great-great grandparents came to America from Ireland to escape the famine. Their names were James Gallagher and Catherine McHugh Gallagher, and they settled in Wisconsin. We have the family tree handed down, covering at least seven generations. When you are ready let me know and I will send you a copy of the family tree. A few pictures are included here: your mother Barbara Hanson Schnepf, grandmother Wanda Kapelke Hanson, great grandmother Kathleen Ficks Kapelke and great-great grandmother Katherine Gallagher Ficks. From this line you are one-sixteenth Irish. Saint Patrick promised that anyone with a single drop of Irish blood would be admitted to heaven automatically. So you have nothing to worry about on that score. I hope you enjoy learning about the family genealogy. With much love, Great-aunt Jean

20: Chris and Anne...We had a great example of a lasting marriage in Grandpa and Grandma Schnepf. May your marriage give you both the strength, comfort, companionship, joy, and love we have found in ours! Uncle Tim & Aunt Jen Uncle Kevin & Aunt Linda Uncle Terry & Aunt Sue
22: We will always treasure the happiness that you brought into our home on that crazy day when you came by to announce your joyous engagement. We pray for yours & Anne's happiness. | You've always been able to make us laugh and we've always enjoyed our spirited political conversations. | Chris,
23: With love, Grammy and Grampa | Always thankful for our family.
24: Chris...Though the miles have made the gatherings far fewer than we would like, the Schnepf cousins have always created memories when they gather.
