    Happy memories of our families camping together every summer, watching the moon landing together, eating fresh-caught perch or bass (when you could catch some), hugs from "Dunky Dale ", and seeing Indian Blanket flower in your yard for the first time! It is now growing in mine! So happy you are now with my Dad and Grandpop and Grandmom and Bethanne and Arlene and Rich and Lorraine and Ed and others ...and Jesus! Love to you, Aunt Joyce, Mark, Lynn, and Merlene
