Fess Parker died today at the age of 85. His widow, Marcella, was raised in Deep River, Iowa (according to a relative of mine that spent some years there, too). I'm glad we still get to enjoy Mr. Parker in reruns.
(above) I think this is Christmas, 1990, which makes Alex almost 5 and Samantha 3 1/2 years old.
(above) This is Alex, cousin Will, Grandpa Walker, and cousin Rachel with Samantha on her lap. I think this is 1992 or 1993, Easter?? Grandpa Walker cherished EVERY minute with all his grandkids!
