To all of you dear ones, my heart goes out to you with compassion . Our families tangled together from the start, with deep friendships between our dads. I was but a wee one when your parents got married. I remember romping on your farm, the chuckle and giggle of your mom, and her warm, smiling blue eyes. A hard working woman who raised good humans with big heartโ€ฆ.. all with the same happy eyes. May she rest easy knowing how much she was loved, and find reunion with those she lost! A big love to you allโ€ฆ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ
