My mom lived a full lively life . She always loved her rides in the car no matter what time my dad came home. The beautiful person he was always did this for her, even before eating his dinner . In her younger years you would never see her without a Pepsi, and it was still her drink of choice till the end. Growing up we had the cleanest neatest house..she spent her days cleaning. She loved going on picnics ,camping ,and sitting in my sister Dianne & Bills yard very frequently .Her & my dad especially loved my nephew Todd and doted on his son Kyle and they in return idolized both of my parents. Those 2 boys spent extreme amounts of quality time with them. I happened to be the youngest of their 5 , so I was with them the most up until my dad passed 4 years ago. So I knew their deepest thoughts, likes & dislikes. I was told everything about their life until things sadly changed . I love remembering the happy times between my dad & mom when they could come & go as they pleased ..being carefree until their elderly years and saddened by having to depend on others . My wish is my moms soul can rest easy now,,her free spirit can soar once again ,,hoping now my mom & dad can reunite in spirit and rejoice in their freedom from all this worlds troubles. Mom you are now with your ""Hun "" again. May you now continue your ride together. Daughter Joanie & Dave( who you just loved to tease) ❤️
