  10. Reading the funeral notices in the Lincoln Journal came across Steve Wroughton’s funeral notice and although I didn’t know him I know his brother Dave at Superior and wish to express my hearthfelt sympathy, love and prayers to him and the family…pretty much a shock since Dave was pretty sick just recently himself… may Steve rest in peace…Shirley Dove Webber, Kansas
