Whenever I hear COME TO THE GARDEN I think of you. You got your wish to be with dad. I will miss you so much..like Bridgette I will also think of you when I see a really clean room and baked from scratch desserts. I am sure I will never reach your standard for doing the laundry. Bye for now.

My heart goes out to you all in your time of sorrow.  I will always remember Aunt Orphie with much love in my heart.  If there is anything I can do, please let me know.  

Thinking of my family in Minnesota. I have so many good memories of my Grandma - she was always so kind and beautiful. Wish I could be there for the service, I will be watching the stream and she will be in my heart. Love, Amy

What a wonderful life she had to be loved by so many!  I will think of her whenever I bake anything from scratch, or whenever a room is perfectly clean. Sending my love to MN!
