Happy Thanksgiving to all the family. At the last Thanksgiving of the century we have so much to be grateful for...this is the century of the wonderful development of the Reiling family. One that started with an eighth grade educated merchant and a poor little girl whose father was a tavern keeper.
We have extended our wings around the world and presently live all over the country. We have been involved in all aspects of society save politics and even dabbled in that (does anyone remember Aunt Jane's run for mayor of Kettering???--thanks Edie).
We have members in the family that have and are leaving indelible marks on society, known around the world, and numerous inventions, publications and discoveries, including "Josie Brand Peanuts!"
I have a great deal of pride for my family and love all of you. I thank the Good Lord for this wonderful blessing. He has blessed us with long life, very few have not lived beyond childhood, and for the most part good health. Thanks to all of you for your support on this webpage...and let's keep it going!
Love, Dick and Liz
