Jan, Nancy, Tom, Bob, and George...how we all LOVED your beautiful mother, or as she said, my "otha' motha' ". Our growing up days in New Albion provided a special foundation. In later years I always felt encouraged hearing her voice, seeing her smile, and being BLESSED with that giggle. Your Home-going must be extra special...looking forward to joining you some day!

Rosie was one of my sweetest memories of my teen years and beyond. A blessing to know. Every time I saw her, even when I visited her in the nursing home last year, she always had to laugh at the memory of Georgie in the basket of my bike tooling around New Albion. Her family was blessed to have her all these years. A great friend to my mom, too. Love you , Rosie B.
