Memories

Janet, I just wanted you to know that I am thinking and praying for you and your family. Your Mom was a grand lady and she lived a grand life. I know she will be missed. I missed her when I left Faribault. She was active with the seniors group from church and that is where I got acquainted with her. I know she will be missed but just think, She is with our Lord and at peace, active, and without pain. We will all be together again one of these days. She lived an active life and what stories I know she could tell us. I am headed out for Arizona and will be home again in the spring. Have a wonderful winter. I will see you in the spring. Love Barb Foss ;-)
