I remember going to the drive in movies and fishing as a family. Dad would always pop a big brown grocery bag of popcorn for the drive inn movies or for watching movies at home. Mom loved her family and was glad to see anyone that came to see her. I love you mom, I will miss you greatly, thank you for everything!

There are so many childhood memories of the summers I spent with my grandparents. And as soon as I got to their house, I couldn't wait to go up the street, across the pond to the Akes house to hang out with Sandy and Pam. Alk the neighborhood kids congregated in their yard, playing baseball, hide n seek, volleyball. It was the Best time. RIP Mrs. Akes!!!
