I will always remember with fondness our time spent canning pickles in the summers, riding in the back of Grandpa's pick-up truck heading out to the lake for an afternoon "cruising down the river", or our shopping sprees hunting for treasures. Your home was always filled with sweet treats and we left with sweet memories. We love you and miss you very much. With much love, your granddaughter, Dixie

Grandma, You will be missed. You will be remembered. I will cherish my memories of coming to visit you on vacations when I was a child. I will treasure my memories of sitting with you and Grandpa on your back porch and enjoying a cold drink on a hot day. I will cherish all of the time we spent together. Love always, your grandson Randy.
