I have many fond memories of your parents - going to their house in St. Joseph for lunch or just a visit, your father calling your mother every weekday at the same time to see if she needed anything, seeing your mother at Woodcrest Country Manor, etc. Thank you for sharing your family with me. Love, Laurie
