Many years ago, my grandfather, Jacob H. Bosscher, wrote his memoirs for his children and grandchildren.  Grandpa’s story started back in horse-and-buggy days and involves flu epidemics, budget cutbacks, debt, decades in Rehoboth,New Mexico, and a stint in the New Mexico State Senate. I wanted to make his wonderful story of God’s faithfulness available to my children and grandchildren, so I re-typed Grandpa’s Memoirs and added dozens of photos as well as Grandma’s memoirs and a conclusion written by my Aunt Bea.

If you’d like to purchase your own copy of these memoirs, you can do so by clicking on this link:

Bosscher Reunion 2010

The Bosscher reunion was held on Saturday, 07 August, in the youth building of the 12th Avenue Christian Reformed Church in Jenison.  We gathered to visit with Bob & Deb Skarda, who had traveled “up north” from Atlanta to attend a convention in Chicago.  They surprised us by bringing along Karen Rolader and Tom Skarda, also from the Atlanta area!!
