Condolence & Memory Journal

My name is Patricia A. Pogue Rogers, My father Eurie "G" Pogue (who died last year 2020 at the age of 94 he was a mason for all his life)My Dad worked at the Maintenance department at MSU, I believe Mr. Prescott is the same Mr. Prescott that my Dad worked with. I know that he thought a lot of Mr. Prescott. An I just wanted you to know that. If he is not the right Mr. Prescott then I am sorry to bother you. But Dad always talked about Prescott and Henry. An I wont never forget how much he thought of both of them. He will be greatly missed as is my dad. An hopefully they all are laughing and joking together once again.
