What a nice picture of your mom! I am so sorry to hear that she died but know she had been in poor health for some time. The last time I saw her was while she was in Longhouse. I have known your family since you came to Spencer and lived on West 4th Street. I remember the first time I knew of you was when Jim came home with Randy one day. He told me about his siblings and said, "My brother, Bob, is a carbon copy of me". Your mom was a lovely lady and so brave. I know you will miss her greatly. My sympathies to you all.

I have many fond memories of traveling with your mother with the Farmers Bank Heritage Club. She was alot of fun and always enjoyed her smiling face coming to the bank. She will be greatly missed by all those that knew and loved her.
