> Kari,
Hi. My name is Thomas Laird. My father is Kenneth. His parents were Clarence Laird and Dena Obbink. Dad is 90 and he and mom live is Sugar Land Texas. Small world. Dad was born and raised in Nebraska, as you already know. I found your website with pictures and was so excited to find out a little about my Dad's side of the family. Dad was excited too. It is very hard to find anyone related to us on his side. I see that you are in Texas also. Great job on the history and photos. I had never seen my grandmother before I found your website. Thanks for all the hard work.
