    To the Fultz Family……
    What a loss to the family, the Community and Tracy Lutheran Church !!! How fortunate that they first bought the farm so close to Tracy. If we recall correctly, the farm was owned by Loyd or Leo Guimond. As a family enterprise, it expanded to many more acres plus the hog business complete from birth to the market.

    They left everything in good hands!!!!!!
