I took this photo in 1977 or 1978 at our home on Mother’s Day. The young woman on the far left is Tommie. John is to her left and Becky is to her right. Next to Becky is Carl, then Marjorie, then Mary, and Karin.
4 of them will soon be buried in the lots bought by Mack and Marjorie.
Karin & I plan to be buried close by.

I remember all the times that I spent with TJ throughout my life with great fondness. I can remember going to stay with her when I was a teenager and Kyle and Gregory were really little. I had a great time! I always felt close to TJ. She was a great friend to me.I’m really going to miss her but I know I’ll see her again.
