I remember everything from childhood with Froggy. And then again as a no adults in 2010 and every day since. She was a wonderful person apparently a wonderful mom grandma Friend and anyone who knew her just love her she sent me before she passed away pictures from when I was a child and growing up did she hold onto for 30+ years and her devotion to me and to everyone else will never be forgotten and I wish I could’ve had time to get to meet her
