Memories Timeline


  1. I can remember going to play with my cousins when they lived on Brickyard Rd. They were always such a happy family. I have many good memories from our childhood days in Emma. Jo was sure a wonderful person, and I only have good memories of her. She was always so kind, speaking so softly to all the children. My thoughts and prayers are with each and every one of you.
