  • I have so many treasured memories of Mr. Huvler…. most of them from the sheep barn at both the Morrow County Fair and the Ohio State Fair. Just the mention of the Huvler Family makes me smile and triggers many memories of showing sheep and ‘just hanging out’ in the sheep barn at fair time. Seems like yesterday…..
    Hugs and love to all the children and grandchildren of Cloyd and Myrle. I will always hold each of you close to my heart.
