    One of my fondest memories is when we got to visit Aunt Sharon, Uncle Wayne and my cousins at their farmhouse out in the country. We used to play with kitties in the barn and chase cows in the field then run to hide in a teepee. Thank God for our precious memories and time spent with family!

    I remember the family picnics we used to have at Aunt Sharon and Uncle Wayne’s house. My dad was very close to his family and we got to spend summers at Grandma’s house with Jeff, Tina and Chris. One time we asked Grandma to take us town and she wouldn’t so Jeff, Tina, Chris, Clay, Vicki and I took off down the country road on our way to town which was probably 15-20 miles away. Grandma came looking for us in her car and she found us a couple miles away. We had some good times! I miss our family! You are in our thoughts and prayers!
