Mom, you will be missed. So many memories, pictures, crochet blankets and quilts, car rides, your impeccable flower gardens and gardening and visits for coffee and lunch at cafes. Thank you for giving me an appreciation of the country life and most of all your helping raise me. You and Dad showed me so much love when I got married. And babysat our son his first year of life. Rest now in peace. Love always, Debbie, Shaun and Van
