Our family will miss you! Rich and I have wonderful memories of the years we lived in Fort Worth and were able to spend holidays and celebrate birthdays together. I recently found "Flat Stanley" that you sent back to Florida for Jonathan's class with all the special things to do in Dallas. You had put together so much information I bet his class had a great time learning about the city of Dallas and the state of Texas. I will certainly treasure your recipes as you were such a wonderful cook and baker. I am glad we were able to spend time together this year and my mom will certainly miss your weekly telephone conversations! Rest in Peace. We love you.
Johnna, Rich, Gloria, Thomas, Christopher and Jonathan
