Memories Timeline


  1. Some of my favorite memories growing up were visiting Aunt Judy and Uncle Mell on the farm. She always kept storybooks and coloring books in one drawer in her dining room for all of us to play with when we would visit. I learned all of my nursery rhymes from those books. We also shared the same Birthday. I will think of you with love on "our" birthday.

  2. One less flame to light the way One less flower to remain One less life to grace the world But our loss is heaven's gain
