Mom, I will miss you so much. You taught me so many things growing up. I learned to cook, sew, clean, garden and can vegetables, work hard, fish, hunt, quilt (and so many more things) by your side. Your work ethic was evident in all you did. I appreciate all those lessons. I remember most vividly a few weeks ago when I was at your house and I was leaving you told me "Thanks for coming over, I appreciate it. I love you". It was one of the last treasured moments we had together. I will cherish it forever. I love you too mom.

Wayne & Vickie McKnight, Jacque Davis and families.
