I will always remember all the Thanksgiving Dinners that we shared together. You planted the vegetables, picked them, shelled them and then cooked them for all 50 plus family members. The vegetables were delicious especially your cream corn. You were always so unselfish thinking of others before yourself. We will miss you my dear sweet sister, but you will always be with us in our thoughts and prayers.
All our love,
DeDe and Louis
