February 1935 - December 2003 (Buried December 15, 2003)



"Bernard, remember to always say please and thank you..." The other day, I took Billy, our grandson, out to visit his grandmother's grave. I asked Billy what he remembered most about his grandmother to which he replied, "she always reminded me to say please and thank you." I began to tell Billy some of the wonderful stories about his grandmother. One was when I proposed to her in 1951. She said "yes" and then later reminded me that I did not say, "May I please ask for your hand in marrage and that I got so wrapped up in giving her a hug that I forgot to say thank you." I love telling that story about the love of my life.
