Wonderful memories that make me smile…camping, Walt Disney World, cherry picking, painting, pool and card parties at your house – just to name a few. Great times! And who could forget yummy cottage-cheesed filled peaches and pears? Wonderful, wonderful memories.

Terry, I have wonderful memories of your Mom when we did ceramics at your Grandmother’s home. Your Mom had a wonderful talent for detail painting. I think of her each time I put out my Christmas Village. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Jayne
