One of the many things that I will always remember was my Grandma’s impeccable baking. She always had fresh homemade bread and oatmeal muffins when I would visit, and my favorite was her famous peanut butter bars. She always had a batch or two frozen for me when I arrived. In fact Grandma even mailed these to me from time to time!!! Love you Grandma. RIP and know your legacy lives on

Your dear mother has been in our thought these last few days. I will miss the twinkle in her eye whenever I visited and brought her Eucharist.
There is much rejoicing in Heaven at the reunion between Mary and Jim.
