Tammy, Terri and Jeff,
I am so sorry for your loss of your mom. I was in her wedding when I was about 5... she sent me a picture of it maybe 2 years ago.
One of my best memories is when I came to Wapakaneta, Ohio and your dad worked for Sears and I stayed 2 weeks when I was about 11. I baby sat the three of you and one memory I have is one of you, I think Jeff was on the sliding board out back and threw up down the slide.... next day I also was sick and in bed. I also remember Jeff you had casts on your legs to straighten them. And I
was sleeping in the same room as you in your baby bed. Also i remember one of the last times I saw her and one or both of you girls at a wedding reception for one of Uncle Bruce's girls reception at Skyland Pines. And we sat together with Grandma Della and Kathie and your mom. So much fun.. God Bless Her... and you kids...

Bruce's girls at Skyland Pines and we sat together with my mom Burdella and Kathie.... such fun times. Also I remember anytime I was staying we had "popcorn" To this day I think about those days.... I love popcorn... I wish we could have been closer in miles.
Been too long....God love her.
Pam (Wenning) Michel

I loved you kids.
