    My Heart is with you all. I was sad yo hear the news and have been keeping you all in prayer. The memories are plenty but I'll share only a couple. I remember enchilada night at Ron and Sue's house. We got molded cheese from Gallions and I learned how to properly cook ground beef...extra fine! Jill made some mean enchiladas! I also remember helping her plant flowers at the house in town (and the box turtle). She always had such a green thumb! I know she will be missed by many, and I hope the good memories will help you through this time. Sending you all my love.
