  3. My best memories of Grandma were all the bike rides we took while I was staying with her during summer breaks, Spending a week at the cottage with her and grandpa – it was so rainy that week but we did puzzles, read books and listened to Benny Goodman & Glen Miller 8 tracks, lunches in early December for christmas shopping afterwards… So many to mention but those are on high on the list!

  4. Many GREAT memories of Aunt Barb including visits to her cottage in Michigan, family reunions in Tennessee (a round of golf just the two of us), and time with her and family at the parent’s home on Vine Street in Marion. Love to you all,

    Mike
