Some of the best days of my childhood were spent with all of you-running around the countryside on that mini bike from house to house! Always an open door, friendship, and all the food you could eat. Very fond memories. My heart is with you all.

While she lived in Texas, she was my beloved friend, and family. She was with me when I had my triplets. She was there for me thru some very difficult times, ever faithful, and supportive. I belive that Heavenly Father brought us together, to help each other along some rough roads. She will always be in my heart. My love and prayers for her family members there in Fla.
