The boys are welcomed into the family by Aunt Laura Thiele of Ames and Great Grandmothers Maxine McKenna and Nancy Thiele, both of Dysart. Great Grandfathers Harold McKenna and Leo Thiele are watching over them from Heaven.
The cousins are planning to meet each other this summer when both families will travel home to Iowa to greet the McKenna and Thiele families and friends.
