I wanted to let you know there are a few mistakes in my grandpa's obit.

I think whomever wrote the obit (I am assuming the undertaker) got their facts mixed up back in 1970.

My grandparents moved to CR in 1943 not 1941.

My grandparents did not move to Iowa City in 1964. Just my Grandpa in 1964. My grandmother died in 1963.
