Memere you will be missed so much. My only regret is you not being able to meet your two great grand daughters Brianna and Karen along with your great great grand daughter Amaya. My fondest memories were when I got to go visit you and Pepere during the summers. Picking Mulberries and going in all stained and hearing you laugh while asking where are all the berries you were out there for a long time. Knowing you saw me and Karen eat 5 and maybe put one in the container. Thank you for many many more wonderful memories. Fly high Angle your with family watching over us all.
