What a life! You were a motivating influence and surrogate mother to so many. I appreciated all you did for me and the family--typing our term papers late into the night, "babysitting" so Sam and I could attend conferences (the kids, of course, putting in requests for your meatloaf and Dad's chili), joining us for trips to the beach, helping us bake cookies for the holidays, and being there for all the family events. When your remembrances of the past became the major focus of your daily thoughts, the great grandchildren marveled in your stories of growing up in Michigan, and you became an important part of their histories. You left this world with a lot of love, and will always be a part of who we are.

Tell Dad we said "hello" and send our love.

The picture of Aunt Donna shows the fun and excitement for life that she had. She always seemed to enjoy it when we were together. That is one of the things I remember most. It was always fun being with the cousins......lots of laughter and good times. Everyone had such a good sense of humor which made being together special and that has given me a lot of good memories over all these years.

I think some of my "driving skills" were developed with the thought of how Aunt Donna would negotiate traffic by putting her left hand by her face and pressing the gas peddle when merging onto the highway. I have thought of that often. However, I don't think she always drove like that.....or did she?

God Bless the Huya family. Our prayers are with you all.

I treasure the time we shared "Grandma sitting" and hanging out when Aunt Donna came up and my parents and sister went camping. In later years we even took trips to Mackinaw Island and another to The Soo to watch the ships. I got to hear a lot of stories from her perspective. She also added a lot of advise.

You-all are in my thoughts and prayers.

I always remember the family fun we had for a week or so during the summer. The picnics, going swimming at the lake, and just having fun. One time at your house your mom put newspaper on the table and we had crab for supper. What fun that was! You are all in my prayers. Love you. Loren.
