So many happy memories, from family gatherings in the purple living room, to horseback riding at the farm, to long conversations about gardening. And most importantly, for me, was what she taught me, not through a class or training, but from how she lived...the greatest joy will come from simply being who you are.

Much love to the family during this difficult time. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

-Cheryl, Harry, Alexis & Dylan
