Long ago memories of time spent in Minnesota--seemingly a lifetime ago. She and Dad will share a different kind of Huntington Family 4th of July reunion on a farm far more beautiful than Grandpa George owned or the gatherings at Uncle Seth and Aunt Marge's home. Wishing we could be there to share in the celebration of her life, but mom is also under Hospice Care here in Tucson. Giant hugs to everyone--you're in our thoughts and prayers. Ann, Gil and Mom
