Remembering the great times we had at the farm. Bill and I were so blessed to have been able to enjoy getting to go there and so thankful. The Dr. and Fran were so wonderful to be with. I miss the walks Fran and I had together and picking the wild flowers, cooking together, watching the deer and turkeys and so many other fun things. I miss her as so many others family and friends do. I feel I am a much better person than I would have been being that I was blessed to be with her. I know she is now with the Dr. and Bill having a great time. She will always have a special place in my heart.
