We have many wonderful memories. Mom and Dad’s house was always open and there was a cookie in the cupboard for everyone. Whether it was workers from the logging and blueberry business, childhood friends dropping by to play, sleepovers with the grandchildren or a meeting for one of Mom’s groups, everyone felt welcome.
