Wendy and family I am so sorry to hear of Pokey’s passing. He was the last surviving member of the 4some that included my Dad, Lem Tschappat and George Graham who played golf on a regular basis at Clair Mar. Their birthdays were always celebrated at the golf course with a cake baked by Kathie. I occasionally cooked breakfast and took it to the golf course for them. Marie would have coffee and orange juice to go with breakfast. I hope there is a beautiful golf course in heaven so they can get together again.
