ADD A MEMORY
Mary Criscoe

I was the youngest of 10 kids so yes I was spoiled. But it wasn't just by mom and dad it was all of my brothers and sisters also. I will always remember when my husband ask dad for my hand in marriage. Dad told William that he better take care of me or he would come after him with a ball bat. They always picked at each other. I was so proud when Dad was baptized William and my 2 of my brothers helped with it he was 89 years old. Praise God . I will miss you dad give momma hugs for us. He loved seeing the great grandkids.
