I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother and grandmother. I have fond memories of your parents visiting with my parents, Marian and Jean Healey. Jean and Ike worked together at Layne Western. Deepest sympathy to your family.

I remember your mom so fondly in the big farmhouse - she was always smiling and always laughing. Her laugh was wonderful - Whenever we arrived she came out from the kitchen - She must have loved it there- so big and filled with sunshine. One day, in particular, she sent us kids to the garden with a salt shaker and a water hose -we pulled the turnips up washed em off and ate them right then and there. Your mom watched us out the window from the kitchen.

So many fond memories of your family and mine - Prayers to Judy, Shiela, and Tracy. From the Healey Kids.
