"Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits, who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen."

My husband Randy Sisco and Roy Javenkowski knew this man "Groppy" as a friend and fellow sportsman. The were into black powder and ball shooting at the time. We planned to live the rest of our lives in Rhinelander where we raised our children, built two homes, one in SouthPine Highlands, and our last at 4187 Trails End Road somehow switched in address and ownership to 4189 Trails End Road. Nearly all our age now gone, along with the remembered respect. Ms Kathleen Sisco 1226 N 9th Ave Iron River MI 49935
