Oh the memories we shared. The birth of our children and the loss of your babies. OUr fun times of snow mobiling to Birchwood for a loaf of breead just to get you away from the house for a brief time. The time we Go-Go danced in Spooner…and the guy who drank his drink out of your shoe. (You didn’t even complain that your foot was wet all the way home…my how we laughed) The painful divorces that we both went through. My we shared some great times…our trip out to Wyoming to see my younger sis…and the adventure of surprising my son Jim…which fell through cause Jim had left base that day. On that same trip I was driving along highway 2 West and the road ended..road construction and no signs. My we had some great adventures. Now you are on an adventure without me but I am praying that we will be given the opportunity to someday share another adventure together. When God chooses. I have so many memories from the 40+ years of friendship and I chereish them all. Thank you my dear Nellie Eileen.
