Christmas gathering with the family.
We all loved our potluck Christmas 🎄 dinner at Mom, and Dad’s.
Sweet memories.
We played games, and just had fun enjoying one another.
Little gifts were passed around.
Loved how mom played Mrs. 🤶 Claus,
She looked so nice .

I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't know her in her later years, but we lived across the street from you all in the very early 60s in San Mateo, CA. I still have memories from those days. You will all be in my prayers during this difficult time. Love and hugs to you all.

She was a great Goulash maker.
She also loved to hunt Mushrooms.
She always found the first it seemed, and then blow her whistle, and all the girls, and kids came a running in hopes to find some around her.
We called her Mushroom Ma,ma.
She loved Lake Michigan, and would play in the cold water.
I can see her collecting stones on the shore, and sun bathing.
She loved the sunshine on her shoulders.
Hope I’m not repeating myself?
Hope this goes through?
She loved 🐸 frogs.
The grandkids called her grandma frog.
Love you mom.
Your second daughter Sandra Smith now.
Enjoy Heaven, and say I to my son for me.🥰

I will always treasure every moment we had together. I will never forget the Christmas cookie ornaments, mushroom camp our even the silly things like that silly "back-sniff". An inside joke. I love you mom. My heart is shattered. I hope you save me a spot because I think I'll be there soon due to a broken heart. I still can't grasp that you are gone. I keep picking up the phone to call you. I keep checking to see if you took your turn on Scrabble. Love, Presh. (Joanne)
