    I was the boat driver for Henry and Julianne Krauss from 1966-69 and drove past the Descamp’s farm thousands of times. It was the most beautifully kept farm: buildings always painted and and lawns trimmed. Eric’s generation of farmers in that area have all slowly slipped away. All sadly missed.
