Jane and Bill We will dearly miss your Mom! Having lived next door to her these past 22+ years, we can't believe she is no longer with us. We will always remember her smile, her laugh, and the fun times we had sitting in the sun with her in her front yard. She was such a joy to be around! All our love - XOXO

I remember when (all of use cousins) would slide down the back hill (behind Uncle Herbie's house) on a Sunday afternoon, (Audrey, Muriel, Donald, Herbie and Irene) in cardboard boxes. We made do with whatever was available and we had a BALL. After sliding down we would meet the aunts and uncles for lunch in each of their back yards. We really had a good time when we were younger and we had "no fear."

Oh my goodness, I love sitting in the back sit of her car going through the center of town and saying, "Give them the horn, Mrs. Mason." Such wonderful memories of a lady who ALWAYS laughed! She was the best! And the brightest star in the sky tonight.
