RE: Yul Brynner and Day 65
I'm so happy for you when it comes to your smoking cessation. I've been told cigarettes are harder to quit than most drugs so good for you, job well done! My 6th year anniversary is on Feb.17th. I send a special Thank You up to God on that day (in addition to my regular gratitude list). Take care & know that you've beaten the demon that was filled with all kinds of stuff to make cigarettes more addictive on purpose. It's one less "monkey off my back" and God only knows how much money I've saved since 2007!

Jacob & Minnie Beck Frahm
I see on Find A Grave, Jacob was your GGGrandfather; I am researching his (2nd?) wife, Minnie A. Beck
b. 7-8-1877
d/o Jacob H. Beck & Anna Unknown Beck
m. Jacob Frahm after 1900

Do you have any Beck information? We are trying to learn maiden name of Anna (Mrs. Jacob) Beck.

RE: Yul Brynner and Day 65
Dear "Sonny",
I happened to read your tribute to Yul Brynner from Sept 23, 2012. It was day 65 of quitting smoking. Interestingly enough, I was not only looking for what I'd written to him a few yrs. ago, but was also going to let him know I finally listened to him and had quit smoking myself on Feb 17, 2007. Just wondering how your quitting smoking is coming along. I hope you are still smoke free. I had to use the patch, but it was worth it. Also spent @$15,000 refurbishing my house that I'd smoked in for nearly 30 years. Needless to say, not one cigarette has entered this house and not one cigarette has crossed these lips! Best of luck to you, sir! I also admire you for playing the organ at the different churches. Happy graving! With All Sincerity,
Kathie L.Webb Blair, Portland, Oregon

RE: Fuchs
So sorry about your dad. May God give you comfort and peace. Sure, contact me whenever you have time if you want some transfers. Just give me a list.

Blessings,
Jeanette
