You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. Craig was in my son Judd's class at HN and I always enjoyed visiting with her at school functions or when we would run into each other when out & about; she was always so friendly and had such a nice smile. It's been some time since I'd seen her, but you all are in my thoughts and prayers as you mourn her loss.

What wonderful memories I have of being at Grandma's with Joyce and Jean. Dear Joyce was so good to Grandma. Joyce would take 20 minutes making up their bed and Jean and I would jump on it, destroying all her hard work. But then she'd laugh that wonderful infectious laugh. Always a happy person who shared her love of life with everyone she meant!!! Carol Flinn Simons
