Franklin cousins, it breaks my heart that you have lost Brad! It seems not long ago that you lost your dad. I am so sorry not to be able to come to the funeral home to give you hugs but my back has been so bad for the past few weeks that I can barely get around. I knew I couldn't get up the hill from the parking lot. Please know that I love each one of you and also know that I loved your mom as a dear, dear friend as well as a cousin. Hilda would pass along her toys as she outgrew them. Sure wish I had that little tin doll buggy she gave me so long ago. I wore the tires off that thing, hauling dolls and cats around! I love you all! Joyce
