Sorry for your loss. We have very fond memories of your mom and dad. We remember being at the farm and all the beautiful flowers she had. We still think of her often. We have a rag rug she made and I bought at at a church bake sale. It has been in our bedroom door other than during holidays for the last at least 30 years maybe even longer. We farm the land across the road from the farm. Ramona was in hospital or we would have been there. Prayers are with you all.

Ladies, Sorry for your loss, I remember your Mom as a fun lady to talk to whenever I was at your farm. Of course, your Dad was also a great guy. Wishing you all well in the coming years. Sandi and I live in Denver and have since i got back from Vietnam in 1966.
