Carol, so many fond memories of our family visits with you and Gib in Farmington--the laughter, the good food, Cow Dog, the emus and the fainting goats! Your flair for decorating and sewing. And your hospitality when Jim and I visited in Jacksonville. Thank you for being part of our family. You will remain in my thoughts and prayers!
Your sister-in-law, Judy
