Deloris, I have thought of you so very much this year, because the little tomatoes have been so prolific. I always enjoy them each year.
Saw M Johnson some months back, and she was telling me you were missing a trip (if I remember correctly) because your Mom was ill, and I’d continued to hope there was improvement. This is a sweet photo of her, and I pray for our Savior’s comfort for each of you.

Deloris, Ronnie, Donnie and Roger, We are so sorry for your loss. Aunt Lou was a wonderful woman. Always with a smile on her face and a kind word to anyone she met. She will be greatly missed.
