I will alway cherish the many hours we spent together, looking at old family photos and hearing you tell us story after story about the family and our history. What I remember most was your honest and sometimes heartbreaking stories you would tell. You never sugar coated those stories, you told them as they really were, even when the memory caused tears to come to your eyes. I will be forever greatful for the gift of my families past that you gave to me. Whether it was telling me about your grandfather being an orphan; your mother singing to you as she did laundry; the visit from uncle Bill; or how mad your father got when you and your sister Kate dress up like "John & Tom", see photo.

The other memory I cherish of you was the wonderful phrases you used. My all-time favorite was, "She looks like a Friday fart dress up for Saturday's market." But you had many more phrases such as "Charity begins at home" that your children and grandchildren remember to this day.

With love and great admiration, for my
"Granny Amy".
