And we will never forget her delicious strawberry and blackberry cobblers. We must believe she is having the best reunion ever now with all of her family who arrived before her at her home. You could see her on weekends scouting out yard sales, going through classified ads, and planning her trip for the day. She would go and return home with her car loaded down with her bargains. She also liked to read and do crossword puzzles.”
