Denise Rohde


Written Memory


Age at the time was 12 years old. Remembers Black Hills Gold Jewelry and Laundromat cash boxes buried in our back yard. Mom and dad returned them to the owners. How scary it was to see houses float past. Bobbie slept through it. Granny’s dog Fi Fi sensed danger and was freaking out as water was flowing into basement. Bobbie worried about saving his bicycle.
