My fondest memories are the times the families would all get together for Christmas. All the fun I had! Was very sad when we stopped getting together for Christmas! We always took group family photos. I was just looking at those pictures last week. We got all of my mom’s pictures stored in our barn and I just happen to get them out at started looking through them. She had a special album with all those group family pictures. What great times!!
Aunt Pat was such a crafty talented lady! I am was so amazed at the gorgeous dolls she made and those clothes pin dolls. I remember when I was younger she gave some to me and when we got back home after visiting I had to make some! I still have the ones she gave me! I always cherished them! Aunt Pat, Aunt Chris and my mom (Joann) are such beautiful, talented ladies, and who could believe all that talent in one family!!!
Aunt Pat was a strong, beautiful woman and I will surely miss her!!!
All my love and prayers to Uncle Ernie and the family!
