    Suzanne and Sally – So enjoyed visiting with you mother in church or as I was walking past her house when she would be working in the yard and enjoyed and respected your dad when I worked at the school.
    All of our parents were from a great generation, hard working and giving back to their communities. Looking back, times were much simpler I think.

  2. I have wonderful memories of spending time with your mom. She was a great friend and companion for Bob Palley. She always made banana bread for my husband. She will be remembered fondly. I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
