So sorry for your loss. We remember your mom and dad fondly. Bonnie remembers playing spoons with the kids at the big dining room table..... our parents were Jack and Betty Cohee. We would go camping as families together and also picnics at the Old River Park (NCR). Our Dad has been gone for a long time, but Mom is still with us, she is 91.
Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time. We hope your fond memories of times past help now in your time of grief.
