Sorry for your loss. We shared a lot of memories as our kids went thru all of the grades together at CAL. Also we got caught out in the same snow storm and spent the night together along highway 3.
We enjoyed visiting with Dee & Dennis at Farmer's Market & would arrive right at 5:00 to get her dilly cheese bread before it was gone. We loved her baked goods! Pam & Bill Moore
