One of the most memorable times for Vicki and I was when Mema and Papa wanted to have Kristen and Nathan to come spend a week with them in Healdton. Also wonderful times camping at McGee Creek and cooking fresh catfish and hush puppies, pulling fifth wheel to the mountains in Colorado enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery. Mema’s cooking was always delicious and she always made everyone feel special.

Ivon was the sweetest and kindness woman I personally ever knew. When you came to visit, Ivon would make your favorites and mine happen to be chocolate meringue pie. Ivon was a wonderful cook and shared many recipes with me. I will miss her very much!
