Today I was offered a piece of cobbler and instantly it took me back to the time at the Lake when you would send me out to pick wild blackberries that you would then turn into the most delicious homemade blackberry cobbler.

Long ago a wonderful lady called me and said“ I heard that you are related to my grand son’s wife and I like to meet you “ that was beginning of our great friendship. I am going to miss our early dinners on Sundays and family gatherings which she included me when it was in her house. So, Rest In Peace my wonderful friend, you will be forever in my heart and thoughts ❤️

We had the privilege of meeting Rosalee years ago on the Osage River in Missouri. Our dear friend, Anita proudly introduced us to her Mom. We have shared many laughs and great times. There are no words to take away the sadness, but this comes simply to let you know we wish you strength and comfort in the days ahead. Love and prayers for the family 💖💖

I will miss you terribly. I have so many fond memories of our good times. All the Leo special occasions , all the many years of MahJongg. All of us in various kitchens pitching in. You including me for a family Thanksgiving when I was alone. The wonderful trip the 8 of us took. My dear Rosalee you will be sorely missed. We have all suffered a terrible loss but we will always have the good times to remember. Love you😢❤️

For anyone reading this my mom requested that people do not spend money on flowers but instead donate to one of three of her favorite places which we will post tomorrow with her other information. Thank you.
