Memories Timeline


  1. dana and family, so sad to hear about your mom. but what a gorgeous pic, just as she always looked, all put together. and a beautifully written memorial to her and a life well lived. i have fun memories of her coming into the office and visiting with her and getting to know her, then in recent years ran into her in the weaverville area while out shopping. i reminded her who i was and where she would have known me from and she was just as sweet as always. she sure loved her family and couldn’t wait to tell me the latest goings on with them. may wonderful memories be a comfort to you all during this time.
