"Many men go fishing all their lives
without knowing it is not fish they are after" ~ Thoreau Although she didn’t make it to January, she made it to her 100 year and that’s good enough for all of us.
She was a kind, thoughtful lady, and enjoyed serving and doing for others. She will be remembered for her stubborn will, and her desire to maintain her independence. We love you Mom and will think of you often.
