  6. I remember when we where walking from the ninth too eighth to visit her sister, we ended up in a ditch with snow to our knees. We laughed so hard, but she did tell me that she will never do it again.

    She could cook and bake anything except cookies. I tried to show her once to make peanut butter cookies, they came out so hard, she told me, man we could use these as hockey pucks. She said she will never make a another cookie. I am going to miss our weekly phone calls. God has another solider for his army in heaven. I am truly going to miss you.
    Too the family stay strong hold on to your memories.
