Since Dad's passing, mom traveled on a cruise to Alaska, taking a Disney Cruise, spending time in the summer with each family, making loving memories for all. She loved her church family and working in Vacation Bible School. Many church members stopped by for visits, mowed the yard and took her to church. We the children, thank you!
