My mother and Winnie were best buddies during my childhood years on Brockley Drive in Delmar. They looked forward to weekly grocery shopping trips, and we Clark girls loved playing kickball with the MacDonald kids on their side lawn. Our mothers remained close friends through the years and across the miles, when Winnie and her family moved back to the North Country. Winnie was the consummate homemaker; I remember she helped me sew a denim jumper on her sewing machine for a 7th grade Home Economics project. To Brad, Marcia, and Susi, your Mom remains a wonderful part of my childhood memories. My sincere condolences to you and your families.

Grandma I will always miss our summer vacations to visit you and grandpa. Every time I rethink those years, I can still smell the fresh cut grass and seeing grandpa on the lawnmower. When I picture pulling into your drive I can see you sitting in your rocking chair waiting for us to arrive. You will always be in our memories and in our thoughts. No one could have asked for a better grandpa and grandma in their lives. I know grandpa was waiting for you at heavenís gate, and Iím happy to know you are together again. We love you and will miss you deeply.
