Jimmy, your mom was always a delight to be around and I will miss her smiling face and sitting outside with her. She always commented on how pretty the cars were in the parking lot and how beautiful it was outside. You are in our thoughts and prayers!

It was always much a big deal if a trip to Cleveland was planned. We would visit Aunt Cal then on to Seven Hills to the Widar’s. It would be a great time to play with our cousins, but the best part was Faith’s cooking. She was a Great Dessert Maker. Plus, everything was served so nicely. It made us feel special, and my sister and I talked about it on the way home.

Often on Sundays, we would travel from Sandusky with John’s mom and dad to visit Faith and Mike. Dinners were always delicious, and Faith’s green bean casserole was my favorite! Now when I think of her, I remember her Pretty face and her delicious laugh! Our memories there will always make me smile!
