Grandma - Besides my mom were the strongest most stubborn and loving woman I knew. I will miss seeing your loving flower garden every year. You will be missed dearly. You will always be in our hearts.
Aunt Bonnie you will be missed.I am sure you would have been happier at home working in your garden but looks like you were in a beautiful place where you could enjoy their flowers. I will always remember you taking the time to pick up Shirley and coming to the farm to visit with mom and of course having coffee and cookies. Loved listening to you ladies talk about the good old days. I know your kids will miss you but my the memories they have. Keep those flowers beautiful up in Heaven. Love you. Judy and Shorty
