Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Many fond memories of staying out on the farm with Auntie Helen and Uncle Eddy. No matter how old, you worked when on the farm. I remember being thrilled at a very age when Auntie Helen had me peel potatoes for dinner. I do not think mother would have been as thrilled. So much good food on the farm. They made the best home made ice cream. Auntie Helen sewed us girls many a new Christmas and Easter dress. She was a blessing to leave us with so many good memories. - Posted by: Heather Smith (Niece) on: Mar 12, 2019
