She remembered it all. She brought me a huge vase of Lillys when I was recuperating from surgery. I sent her a bouquet of tulips from our front from yard for her birthday and back and fourth it went. The big vase will always bring such sweet memories! Her love for Christ has filtered down to everybody in her beautiful, gigantic family! Her husband Bob treated her like the Queen she was. She deserved nothing but the best!!! She told me the last time I was there that she is ready to see Jesus face! I iove you beautiful ladyi Cheryl
