  • John Barron & Suzanne Farrelly

    We have such wonderful memories of spending time with Mort and Paula over the years since Debbie first invited us to the farm as a young couple 34 years ago. We now share those memories with our daughters who got to spend time when they were very young with Mort and Paula and their beautiful family. One of many treasured memories is Mort letting a 4 year old Catherine sit up with him to steer the boat! Sending all our love to Paula and family.

  • McLean. Rob & Nancy

    Condolences to Paula and family on the loss of one of nature’s gentlemen. Fond memories of many a yarn with Mort over 50 years of grain trading at Taylorville.
    Deepest respect, Rob,Nancy & family
