I will miss visits when I would knock on the kitchen door and come in for an hour or so. When I lived next door she would always come out when I was in the garden and show me how to plant ! then take me into her garden and give me lettuce and tomatoes to take home. Joey, maryanne & Nancy I will miss mommy forever !
love...anne jeffrey
