Thanks for the call, Brent. We enjoyed many years of square dancing with your mom in Minnesota and Texas plus many Friday night meals at Bradford. Always enjoyed being invited for your moms BBQ ribs. No one could make them like hers. God’s peace and strength be with you all. Your mom was so proud of her family.
Carolyn Westerberg Callahan says
We will always remember the good meals that aunt Carol shared with us.
She and Clarence and Kristy visited my mother regularly when she was in assisted living and regularly brought sweet treats to go with coffee. She could always keep us up to date on family news.
Even from Texas she wrote often and her letters meant a lot.
Our prayers are with family for comfort knowing she is with the Heavenly Father.
