Happy Hello Dear Readers!
Having my biography in Marquis _Who's Who in America_ (as well as others) is a wonderful feat. But when Who's Who asked if I would like to include enhanced family information, I jumped at the opportunity to once again honor my late beloved father with the following excerpt:
"Enhanced Family Information for Rosemarie Skaine
"In his memoirs, _A Man of the Twentieth Century: Recollections of Warren V. Keller, A Nebraskan_, my father, who was born in January 1900 and died in October 1999, tells of his life on a bridge building gang. His gang built bridges in Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming. In 1923 they constructed their largest bridge, the Green River Bridge on the Lincoln Highway (Highway 30) five miles west of Green River, Wyoming. He tells of his trip from Wyoming to Grand Island, Nebraska after he left the bridge crew: "In Wyoming, Highway 30 was not much more than a wagon trail. At times, on the way between Rawlins and Laramie, the road would disappear into the sagebrush and, at times, you had to follow the railroad tracks by driving in the ditch to reach your destination." Some of the bridges my father helped build are still standing today, although the roads they once served have taken different routes.""
