Memories Timeline


  1. To the immediate family, You are all in my prayers. I can not imagine the pain you are going through at this time, but I would like to share a fond memory with you. There are so many but one that sticks in my mind is your moms graham crackers and icing after a day at the pool. Its times like this I reflect on all the fun times we kids had playing in the backyards and eating your moms cookies and cakes; she was a great baker. I will think of her often as I watch our kids play in the backyards and enjoy the summer. Take care and I love you all.
