So sorry for your mom's passing. We always looked forward to Linda bringing Anita and Patty to Grandma Rhoda's on Saturdays. We played kickball (among other things) while Linda, Grandma Rhoda, and our mom would sit on the swing and watch. Mom enjoyed her visits. May you find comfort in your memories, keeping you in our prayers.

I am so very sorry for the loss of your mother. I have thought fondly of her over the years. We had one of her German Shepherd puppies. He was the best, sweetest, loving dog ever. We lost him last year at the age of 14. I hope she gets to see all her puppies in heaven.
Thoughts and prayers, Lori Button
