The house looks so empty now. There was always someone there as far back as I can remember. She is the end of a generation. May she rest in peace and sympathy to her beloved family.

When I was younger my dad and mom would visit Ben, Katie, William, and Fay on several occasions. I remember they stuffed us all in Ben's car with the push button transmission and we would ride around and visit one of his sawmills or go see some of the farm land that my dad worked. I also remember the good home made ice cream we ate on several occasions. I have lots of fond memories from those days. Donna and I sorry to hear of her passing and our prayers go out to the family.
