Paul D. Shenk

I was born and went to church with the talented Augsburger family. I always admired the stature and abilities of Don and his brothers and sister. Don moved away, but I always followed the family with great interest. They put “Elida” on the map of the world! I am a “short Shenk” still in Elida, with few talents, but have always marveled how Clarence and Stella Augsburger who also lived in the country, were able to have children of world wide fame? Then, I remembered the parable of the talents! Don, rest in peace. My condolences to his family and to Anna Mary and Myron. Myron and Esther, hopefully our paths may cross at the Dairy Queen again in Park View!
