Brother Paul

My brother Paul suffered a stroke on his birthday, Nov. 29th. Our thoughts and prayers are with him in this critical stage. He is in Albany Med.
Paul is full of energy and couldn't wait to get into his next project. He bought a large farm a few years ago and has been expanding his vision ever since. He has a wonderful petting zoo including goats, a miniature horse, chickens and ducks. Just recently he added a double zip line that ends in his pumpkin picking patch.
Get well soon Paul, we love you XOXOXOXO

William Engelke

We lost my Dad, Wm. Engelke in November. Among his many accomplishments was the Want Ad Digest which was started in 1962 with a partner, Art Stenstra. He took over the classified publication several years later and with the rest of his family continued on with the business. We will miss you...and carry on your legacy with the publication in New York State and on the web.
